Saxony asks Czechia for increased border cooperation

The German state of Saxony has asked Czechia for increased cooperation on the Czech-German border when it comes to migration, Interior Minister Vít Rakušan told reporters after meeting with his Saxon counterpart Armin Schuster on Monday. Mr Schuster stated that the migration situation is under control, but that the reason for the border controls is security and the hybrid war that Russia is waging in addition to restricting migration. The two ministers also discussed cooperation between Saxony and Czechia during natural disasters such as forest fires.
