Germany will strengthen the protection of the German-Polish border. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Germany Horst Seehofer, writes DW.

Seehofer said eight additional police units have already been sent to areas bordering Poland. The Minister stressed that, if necessary, the control of the border line passing through the forests will be further strengthened. He also approved the construction of a barrier fence on the border between Poland and Belarus.

Seehofer noted that the current control on the border with Austria will be extended for another six months, which Germany has notified Brussels about.

"If the situation on the German-Polish border does not defuse, we will have to consider the possibility of introducing similar measures, coordinating them with Poland and the authorities of the federal state of Brandenburg," Horst Seehofer said.

Note that the number of illegal migrants entering Germany across the border with Poland has grown significantly in October this year. In particular, in August, 713 people were found illegally arriving in Germany at the German-Polish border, of which 474 arrived through Belarus. In September, the number of illegal entries through Poland increased to 2,323 people, of which 1903 got through Belarus.
