    LUBIANA - If Austria and Germany actually decide to limit the number of migrants it welcomes, Slovenia is ready to adopt similar measures, including the suspension of Schengen with the re-introduction of passport-controls along its borders, said the Lubiana government, after Austrian Chancellor, Werner Faymann, ordered the re-enforcement of controls on the Austrian border, with a temporary suspension of the free circulation of people.

    When Vienna's decision will come into force, Slovenia, announced its government, will introduce controls at its border in order to regulate the flow of migrants coming from Croatia.

    In the case in which ''Slovenia's national interests were to be put at risk or if other countries were to act unilaterally'' Lubiana is ready to take ''concrete steps'' at its borders, the statements reads.

    According to press sources, Austria could officially suspend the Schengen Treaty by the end of the week.
