Commission responds to Danish intentions to introduce strengthened intra-EU border control measures

"I call on the Danish government to refrain from taking unilateral steps and to make sure that any measures taken are in line with the relevant law. The Commission stands ready to continue the dialogue with Denmark. But it will, if needed, use the tools at its disposal to guarantee the respect of EU law", said Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner responsible for Home Affairs.
