“The Hungarian government will donate a spiral barbed wire to Montenegro to cover 25 kilometers of state border in order to prepare Montenegro for a possible higher inflow of migrants. This is, inter alia, foreseen by the Treaty signed in mid-April by the interior ministries of Montenegro and Hungary, which was confirmed by the Government on Thursday.

The agreement stipulates, among other things, that the Government of Orbán will provide the transport of a wire to Montenegro, as well as to engage experts who will train Montenegrin colleagues how to set it up. It is alleged that the Montenegrin side is obliged to provide them with accommodation and food.

‘Hungary has offered a donation of spiral wire to cover 25 kilometers of the state border, with the aim of better preparedness of Montenegro for the possible higher inflow of migrants through our territory. Police cooperation between Montenegro and Hungary is based on the Convention on Police Cooperation in South East Europe (PCC SEE), given that both countries are signatories of it, which is at the same time the legal basis for the signing of the Donation Equipment Agreement,’ states are in the contract.” (translated from Vijesti)
