Justice Minister Anders Anundsen believes that the EU must let Norway continue with temporary border controls while we think it’s necessary.

Norway is one of five Schengen countries that have introduced border controls in the wake of the refugee crisis.

When the ministers of justice in the EU and EFTA meet together in Luxembourg on Thursday morning, Anundsen will ask for the green light to continue the scheme after the end of November.

Anundsen stressed that the government has not taken a position on whether the controls should be allowed to continue.

– I think it’s important that we have the opportunity to continue with internal border controls as long as we believe it is necessary, said Anundsen.
