Zarko Obradovic on Migrants before Council of Europe PA
Prof. Dr Zarko Obradovic, member of the National Assembly’s standing delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, briefed the members of the PACE Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons Committee on the sudden increase in the numbers of migrants in Serbia and the problems the country has because of it.
Prof. Dr Obradovic said that Serbia cannot handle the rising the numbers of migrants and asked the Council of Europe and the European Union to help Serbia, a country that shares European values and wants to participate in the solution of this common problem. He also announced the Serbian Government’s initiative to organize a regional conference on the matter.
Rapporteur Tineke Strik of the Netherlands commended the initiative and said that she would include the information shared here in the report of the Council of Europe PA Committee.
