In order to do so, the government will sign an agreement with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the TASR newswire reported.

This will be already the sixth agreement which follows the humanitarian transfers from July 2009, December 2010, June 2012 and 2013, and July 2014.

Mostly families, or women and children, will arrive in Slovakia. They will be temporarily placed into the facility in Humenné (Prešov Region), and then will be sent to other countries.

Accommodation, food and toiletries will be paid by the government, with the rest being paid by UNHCR, TASR wrote.
