Copenhagen could introduce requirements that transport operators check the identity documents of passengers travelling to Denmark, the country's migration minister warns, a move that would compel German rail and bus services to check IDs.
"We are ... monitoring the situation hour by hour and if neccessary we will put the carrier liability into force," Danish Migration Minister Inger Stojberg says after talks with Swedish and German officials, adding that it could happen "with a very short notice."
"In Denmark we don't wish to be the final destination for thousands and thousands of asylum seekers," Stojberg adds.
Meanwhile, Swedish Migration Minister Morgan Johansson says the situation had become very difficult for his country last year, noting that 26,000 unaccompanied minors had arrived in the last four months, or the equivalent of "1,000 school classes."
