EU News 445/2013
COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
Brussels, 22 October 2013
The Council adopted the regulation establishing the European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) (PE-CONS 56/13) today without discussion.
The aim of the European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) is to reinforce control of the Schengen external borders. In particular, EUROSUR will establish a mechanism for
member states' authorities carrying out border surveillance activities to share operational information and to cooperate with each other and with the FRONTEX Agency in order to
reduce the number of irregular migrants entering the EU undetected, and to increase internal security by preventing cross-border crime, such as trafficking in human beings and
the smuggling of drugs.
