Security measures taken in view of upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw
Poland is about to launch the border control with neighbouring E.U.-members on July 4. Unprecedented security measures are undertaken due to the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw along with the International Youth Day, the Polish Interior Ministry stated.
As TVP.info reported, the border control strives to make sure that those 'who may violate public order or otherwise pose a threat to security' are prevented from entering the country.
According to Polish authorities, special mobile border troops will be travelling by the so-called "Schengen-buses" to patrol the fringe zones. The vehicles are equipped with portative devices for checking documents, detecting drugs, and verifying a radiation level.
The Polish Interior Ministry adds, travellers who have the right to move freely within the E.U. ought to carry documents proving their identity and citizenship. Non-E.U. citizens should have documents entitling them to stay in Poland, like a visa or stay permit.
The temporary border control will last until August 2.
