    Hungary will most likely build a fence on its border with Romania in order to deter migrants, the head of the Hungarian prime-minister's administration, Janos Lazar, said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Lazar, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia have come to the agreement that the migrant issue should be first of all solved at Greece's borders.

    "We are a ready to build a technical barrier on the border with Romania. Today we have a high probability that this cannot be avoided," Lazar said at a press conference, as quoted by the Ziua news agency.

    The European Union is currently struggling to manage a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of people fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The EU border agency Frontex recorded more than 1.8 million illegal border crossings into the EU in 2015.
