Migrants:Austrian minister, Spielfeld model for Brenner Pass

"Any measure will be agreed with Italy"

(ANSA) - BOLZANO - Austria's Defence Minister Hans Peter Doskozil has proposed a ''border management'' for the Brenner pass, like the one which has been already put in place at the border with Slovenia in Spielfeld. ''Currently the Brenner records between 200 and 300 refugee arrivals per day,'' a spokesman for the ministry told the local daily Die Presse. If these numbers continue to increase, ''it will be necessary to manage these arrivals in an orderly way'', just like it happens in Spielfeld. Experts - the minister added - will have to assess, according to the topographical situation, the possible need for a barrier at the border between Italy and Austria. Any measure - he stated - will be agreed with Italy. According to Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner, interviewed by the Apa news agency, said that building barriers at crossings along the southern border of Austria is deemed to be ''possible''.
