The minister of interior of Bosnia's northeastern Una-Sana canton, Nermin Kljajic, has rejected accusations that the local authorities there are encouraging illegal migrants to go to Croatia, saying that the two countries are facing the same problem, the Klix.ba news website said on Saturday.

The Zagreb-based newspaper Vecernji List said on Saturday that Croatian security services were considering a possibility of denying entry to those Bosnian officials who encourage illegal migrants to continue their journey towards Croatia as soon as possible and that Kljajic was under special scrutiny because of his previous statements.

Kljajic said that no one in Una-Sana Canton was working on planned transfers of migrants to Croatia and that migrants who had managed to cross the border into Croatia in an effort to get to western Europe were individual cases.

"In the last two years, about 60,000 migrants have passed through the camps in Una-Sana canton, which means that about 54,000 of them have ended up in EU countries. Those people came to Bosnia and Herzegovina with the intention of reaching EU countries. Croatia is justifiably dissatisfied," he said, adding that Bosnian institutions are not managing the migration process in the best way and that "we are dealing with the consequences together."
