Hungary assists in policing Macedonian and Serbian borders

Hungarian police will continue to assist the authorities of North Macedonia and Serbia in their efforts to halt illegal migration, the National Police Headquarters announced.

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.
