Over 900,000 migrants and refugees made their way through the Serbian territory since the beginning of the refugee crisis, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said Thursday.

BELGRADE (Sputnik) — He stressed that the state of affairs represented a heavy burden for Serbia.

"Located in the heart of the so-called Western Balkan migration route, Serbia, since the beginning of the crisis and up to this moment, has seen more than 900,000 refugees and migrants, making their way across its territory," Dacic said speaking at the 23rd OSCE Ministerial Council.

Europe is currently facing a major refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of migrants attempting to reach affluent EU member states through various routes, including via Italy, Greece, Turkey and Balkan states. Despite Brussels' attempts to limit the migration influx, many people are still trying to get into the European Union.
