Germany, Switzerland Strengthen Patrols on Common Border
Germany and Switzerland have strengthened border patrols on their common border in order to prevent migrants from travelling north and violating EU rules on asylum, reported BTA.
Switzerland, although not a part of the EU, has become an important transit country for migrants who cross the Mediterranean, arrive in Italy and wish to move on into Germany and Scandinavian countries.
The German Interior Ministry announced that the police have registered about 4,500 illegal crossings of the border from Switzerland between January and August 2016.
The Interior Ministry stated that the two countries will co-operate more closely in order to prevent the illegal entry of people in Germany and return the persons who have entered already.
