Budapest (MTI) – The southern borders of the Schengen zone are shifting towards the northern borders of Greece, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday.

Szijjarto spoke in response to a statement by Macedonia earlier in the day, announcing that Macedonia had closed its joint borders with Greece to migrants headed to western Europe. Hundreds of migrants are stuck on Greek land as a result of the measure.

“All this is a logical consequence of Greece still not taking its part in Schengen obligations,” he said.

Szijjarto will hold talks with Daniel Mitov, the Bulgarian foreign minister, in Bulgaria in Thursday and this issue may be discussed.
