This is already the second rotation of Hungarian police officers assisting the two Balkans countries: the first batch of 30 and 15 officers were deployed to North Macedonia and Serbia, respectively, last November.
The officers - under the command of the local authorities - will help patrol the Greek-North Macedonian and the North Macedonian-Serbian border to prevent illegal migration on the Balkans route.
They are equipped with all-terrain vehicles, night vision and thermal cameras and will serve both on the borders and elsewhere in the two countries where illegal migration remains a serious problem.
