The country was expected to receive 1,600 refugees in total according to two plans -- relocation from one EU country to another and resettlement from third countries to the EU, he added.

There were less than 200 refugees currently at the Slavonski Brod refugee center, eastern Croatia, due to the closure of the Balkan route, according to Kovac.
