No Afghani increase

An expected wave of refugees from Afghanistan has not materialised in Slovakia, Migration Office officials have said.

According to the Office there has been no rise in the number of immigrants above that expected or experienced so far.

Following the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, Slovakia was expected to become a key destination for refugees from the central Asian state. Afghans have made up the majority of refugees in Slovakia in recent years.

The European Union recently warned Slovakia that it was becoming a corridor for refugees fleeing to the West from eastern Europe and Asia. The Austrian capital Vienna is only 50 kilometres from Slovakia's western border.
