Czech Republic to send technical equipment to Macedonia

26-02-2016

The Czech Republic will provide technological equipment, such as radars and night vision equipment, to Macedonia to help the country protect its border with Greece. Interior Minister Milan Chovanec made the announcement on Friday during a visit to the Vinojug refugee camp on the border between Greece and Macedonia. The Czech government has already approved 20 million crowns to the Macedonia government to help it meet the extra costs of the immigration crisis. The government has also agreed to prolong the mission of Czech police officers to help the country deal with the ongoing immigration crisis in the Balkans. The help to bolster borders with Greece has been denounced by Athens as unfriendly.
