Serbian Commissioner for Refugees Vladimir Cucić and US Ambassador to Serbia Mary Warlick paid a visit, on the occasion of International Refugee Day, a collective centre in Krnjača, near Belgrade, where 280 refugees and displaced persons live. The refugees informed them that they had been unable to exercise their rights to retirement pensions in Croatia and that, what they find the most difficult, was their decades-long life in a refugee centre, as they are losing hope that they will find proper housing. Warlick assessed that efforts invested in finding a solution to the issue of refugees and displaced persons should be intensified. Cucić emphasized there were another 38 collective centres in Serbia, where some 3,000 persons live and that there are another 2,000 refugees living in unrecognized collective centres, which are not supported by anyone. Serbia is the European country with the largest number of refugees and displaced persons – 66,400 from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia and 210,000 from the southern province of Kosmet – and it takes the 13th position in the world in the number of refugees and displaced persons.
