France to impose border controls for UN climate summit

  • France will impose border controls for one month from November 30 for the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve on Friday said it was a precaution "because of the terrorist threat or risk of public disorder". However, Cazeneuve insisted that the decision to reimpose border controls was not linked to Europe's current migrant crisis. "It is by no means a suspension of Schengen," he stressed, referring to the European Union (EU) free travel zone where passport checks are minimal or non-existent. (Source: IANS)
