Slovenia will demolish the fence that the country set up in 2015 on the border with Croatia. The reason is that it does not serve its purpose, says Prime Minister Robert Golob.

The barbed wire fence was set up during the refugee crisis in 2014-2015, when more than half a million people crossed the border between the countries.

But the 200-kilometer long fence, which covers a third of the border, did not have the expected deterrent effect.

– The barbed wire did not stop anyone from crossing our border, says Golob and says a plan for the demolition must be completed by the end of June.

According to the Prime Minister, the number of refugees arriving in the country increased by 75 percent during the first five months of the year, compared to the same period last year, and the fence now poses only an unnecessary health risk. .
