French President Macron: Double deployment of security forces in the border regions to respond to terrorist threats
On November 5, local time, French President Macron announced during an inspection of a French-Western border point in the Eastern Pyrenees that France will double its deployment of security forces in all border areas to deal with the increasingly severe terrorist threat.
He said that France will deploy 4,800 police, military police and troops in the border areas to combat illegal immigration and strengthen security.
Macron explained that the decision to strengthen controls in the internal border areas of the Schengen was because terrorist acts are likely to be carried out by immigrants.
Macron also stated that the series of terrorist attacks that have occurred in Europe over the past few days have forced Europe to strengthen its fight against terrorism.
In addition, he also called on Europe to carry out more in-depth reforms to the regulations governing the free passage of the 26 countries in the Schengen area without borders.
