Latvia readies its borders in the face of arrival of immigrants

Riga, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Latvian authorities on Wednesday showed a provisional 33-km fence they began to build on the border with Belarus to try to curb the arrival of migrants.

With these measures, Latvia is trying to stop the mass arrival of immigrants to territories of the European Union (EU) from the neighboring country, where they travel from Syria and Iraq, as it is currently happening in Poland.

Minister of Interior, Marija Golubeva, showed the press, in a rare visit to which she invited several media outlets, the state of the border fence.

Authorities consider this barrier a way to discourage the irregular crossing of the border in the areas which, a priori, can be easily crossed.

In other stretches of the borderline between Latvia and Belarus, there are marshy regions, rivers and dense forest masses indeed considered enough natural defenses to prevent the crossing.

Golubeva said there have not been mass attempts to cross Latvia like the ones in Poland in the past few days or those in Lithuania in the summer.
