Germany renews border checks with Greece and Austria

Germany renews border checks with Greece and Austria”

At a meeting of European Union interior ministers in Luxembourg, Germany's Thomas de Maiziere said Berlin was still committed to freedom of movement, "but at the moment we can not do without checks".

The internal borders controls will be limited to the German-Austrian land border and to flights from Greece, the ministry said in a statement. "The government has, therefore, considered it necessary that border controls be maintained so far".

Mr Abdeslam was briefly questioned by police, but quickly waved through the border; an administrative blunder (Mr Abdeslam was not known to French counter-terror police) that cast doubt on the future of the Schengen zone.

Without waiting for the EC to implement reforms, applying the current regulations, these countries have already announced that they will extend the provisional border controls introduced in 2015 for another six months.

In September 2015, Germany reintroduced border controls along its border with Austria, where hundreds of thousands of migrants, many of them refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East, entered the country.

France will continue to exercise tighter border controls with its Schengen neighbours until April 30, 2018. In 2016, Germany was hit by several terrorist attacks, including one a Christmas market that left 12 people dead.

The EU has witnessed an increase of terrorist attacks in European capitals, including Berlin, Paris and Brussels over the past three years.

"While we are now experiencing low entry and asylum rates in Denmark, we must unfortunately note there is still a great deal of pressure on Europe's external borders", said Støjberg.
