BRUSSELS – The latest news on the influx of asylum seekers and other migrants into Europe:
Germany, Sweden and Denmark are warning that more must be done to stop migrants entering Europe from Turkey but that they hope to ease border restrictions as soon as possible.
Senior German interior minister official Ole Schroeder said on Wednesday that "our problem in Europe is that we do not have a functioning system, especially at the Turkey-Greece border."
He says a European Union plan to share refugees arriving in Greece and Italy is not working and warned that when EU responses fail "we will come to measures from the member states."
It came after talks between senior migration officials from the three countries in Brussels. The meeting was called after Sweden introduced ID checks on all people traveling to Denmark and Denmark tightened controls on its border with Germany.
