Austria to deploy soldiers at key refugee entrances

Austria’s defense minister Hans Peter Doskozil said that his country will deploy soldiers at a key Alpine pass to stop migrants arriving from Italy.

According to a western news agency, Austria’s defense minister Hans Peter Doskozil said that his country will deploy soldiers at a key Alpine pass to stop migrants arriving from Italy.

Hans Peter Doskozil told German daily Die Welt that the move anticipates a shift in refugee flows from the Turkey-Greece route to the central Mediterranean.

On Saturday, in the newspaper interview Doskozil said that the military can provide “considerable support to border security” at the Brenner Pass.

It is also reported that he also proposed a civilian-military mission to support the EU bloc’s border agency Frontex.

However, hundreds of thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Africa come to Idomeni to seek asylum in central Europe. Although a border control started in Austria and expanded into the Balkan caused complete closure of the passage, it is estimated that 44,000 refugees are now in Greece waiting to enter into central Europe.
