Austria and Denmark are working together to tackle irregular migration: both countries supported the implementation of the project. To establish education and training centers near NAFTA city. Its purpose is to strengthen Tunisian border security. “The goal should be that people don’t even have to make life-threatening trips to the Mediterranean,” Interior Minister Gerhard Karner, 56, said ahead of a visit to Tunisia on Thursday.
Austria contributed approximately one million euros to the project. Karner stressed that Denmark can run such projects because it is not bound by EU law in the field of migration.
In addition to opening the training center, talks are also planned with both Beck and Tunisian Interior Minister Kamel Feki. “Cooperation with Europe’s neighboring countries is of central importance in combating human trafficking and asylum abuse,” Carner stressed. Tunisia is an important partner “in the field of migration, in combating irregular migration”.
Tunisia is known as a transit state for people fleeing Europe. According to the Interior Ministry, the majority of departures to Italy were recorded from there recently.
