BUDAPEST- Hungary may consider the option of a "corridor" for migrants to pass through from Croatia by train or bus if Austria and Germany want one and take full responsibility, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff said on Thursday.

Janos Lazar said the government's primary goal was to protect Hungary's borders. The fence built along Hungary's borders with Serbia and Croatia and its tough regulations served this goal, he said.

However, if those are not accepted by the European Union then new ways must be found, and Slovenia and Austria have both used the corridor solution, he said.

"If Austria and Germany want this and take responsibility for this along with other EU members, the Hungarian government will consider the ... possibility of creating conditions for migrants arriving from Croatia to the Hungarian border ... to move on in regulated circumstances," he added.
