Belgrade - Minister of the Interior Nebojsa Stefanovic said that Serbia will not become a "collective centre" for migrants, as it was clear that those not allowed into the European Union could also not stay in Serbia.

Stefanovic said in a statement that that the EU countries, especially Germany and Austria, followed by Slovenia and Croatia, have passed certain rules and are not receiving economic migrants.

Serbia currently has an agreement with countries in the neighborhood on sending economic migrants that EU member-states were not accepting back to the countries they had come from, Stefanovic said.
