Germany and Poland tighten migrant route border checks

Interior Minister Nancy Faeser is meeting her Polish counterpart to talk about border controls. German states have urged Berlin to tighten checks amid high irregular entries via Poland and the Czech Republic.
EDnews informs via DW that German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser announced a widening of checks at and near the border after talks with Polish counterpart Mariusz Kaminski on Tuesday — but stopped short of announcing stationary frontier controls.
Berlin is resisting the notion of reinstating fixed checkpoints in the fight against people smuggling from Belarus, as has been requested by two states on the borders with Poland and the Czech Republic.
