STRASBOURG (Sputnik) – Addressing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Aleksandar Vucic said Thursday:
"I have to say that we acted from time to time in even a more European way than some European countries, and we will stay on that path."
According to Vucic, Serbia, currently not an EU member, is ready to share the migration burden with the European Union and can accept more refugees on its territory.
Europe is beset by an enormous refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing to Europe to escape violence and poverty in their home countries. Many refugees use Serbia as a transit route to enter the bloc to travel to prosperous Western EU states where they prefer to apply for asylum.
According to the European Commission, over 500,000 undocumented migrants have arrived in the bloc since the beginning of 2015.
