(ANSA) - BELGRADE - Serbia will not become ''parking lot for migrants'', according to Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic. The country, said Vucic quoted by local media, ''is not able to guarantee accommodation to hundreds of thousands of people.'' Vucic commented on rumors that the conference aimed at raising funds for Syrian refugees scheduled for tomorrow in London would allocate part of the funds to Serbia in order to leave in the Balkan country a certain number of migrants. ''We have not yet seen this money. It's a huge amount for our country, and if someone wanted to offer us several millions, it would mean that hundreds of thousands of migrants should remain in Serbia. But that's not possible'', Vucic said. ''Serbia is not and cannot become a parking lot for anyone'', the prime minister added, underlining, however, that Serbia is still willing to participate in the quota system, although it is not an EU country and has no obligation to do so.
