Gevgelija, 27 July 2016 (MIA) - President Gjorge Ivanov, accompanied by Army Chief of Staff General Metodija Velickovski, will visit the Army units deployed at the southern border with Greece on Wednesday. The soldiers are there to assist the police in patrolling the border following the major refugee and migrant crisis in 2015 and early 2016.
During the visit, President Ivanov will be informed of the current situation at the border and the tactical activities our units are undertaking to prevent further unlawful crossing of the border. At the height of the crisis, more than 10.000 people would stream across on their way toward core European Union countries. Macedonia closed the border in early 2016, after this decision was made by countries further north along the route, and it is now a de-facto external border of the European Union.
President Ivanov will visit the barracks where the soldiers are based, and will have a joint lunch with them troops.cc/09:10
