Hungary seeks support for effort to block migrants entering from Croatia

VIENNA/BUDAPEST - Hungary will seek support for its efforts to try to block the flood of migrants on its southern border with Croatia, similar to the measures implemented on its border with Serbia, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in Vienna on Friday.
"This is the big question of the next few days and weeks, I am trying to seek supporters for this," Orban told a news conference in Vienna, after meeting Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann.
He said Hungary would make a decision about sealing off its border with Croatia only after consultations to gather support for the move.
"The way I see it now is that, even if not whole-heartedly, Austria acknowledges that Hungary, if it wants to uphold international agreements, should implement actual border controls along the Croatian-Hungarian border," Orban said.
