Denmark seeks extended border control and proposes Changes to Schengen Agreement

September 2017, 16
EMAIL  Print A+
Denmark is in favor of border controls and is working to change the rules of the Schengen agreement. Its exemption from the Schengen Open Borders Agreement is set to expire on 12th November 2017.

Governments in EU countries, instead of opening the borders, are pushing for changes in EU rules, and want an extension of the measure for four years.

Broadcaster DR has announced that Inger Støjberg, Immigration minister, accompanied by German, Austrian, French and Norway Immigration ministers, will propose the rule change, in the meeting, to be held with Minister of Justice and Interior Affairs- European-Union Member States, in Brussels, on Thursday, 

Based on the present rules, Schengen countries are in a position to apply temporary border control for a period of six months. When that period expires, the European Commission, as against the member state, takes a decision, regarding extending the temporary border control, provided the remaining Schengen countries approve it.

Denmark, and the other countries, who have taken up the fresh proposal, demand that the Schengen countries should be able to take a unilateral decision, regarding extending their border controls.

If the EU Commission disagrees, with these extensions, taken up by individual countries, it will be required to prove, that border control is not justified. The present proposal is based on taking preventative measures, regarding the burning issue of terrorism, reports DR.

The EU Commission says, that the borders of the European Union zone and the migrant crisis, are presently under control, and there is no justification, for the extension of temporary border controls.

Morten Helveg Petersen, the EU MP of the Social Liberal Party, said that there was an expectation, that the EU Parliament, would be critical of it, and resist the proposal. Free movement is important across the borders, and showing the passport often, is not a welcome move. It is disruptive for freight trucks, to form a queue, at the borders, and for many others also. It is better to solve the problems together, rather than policing Kruså, the Danish border town.
