Merkel aims for Schengen border controls to end from June 15

BERLIN, May 13 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants all emergency border controls introduced to slow the spread of the coronavirus to be removed within Europe’s 26-nation Schengen zone from June 15, she said on Wednesday.

“The goal is, if the occurrence of infections allows it - I want to say that again - that from June 15 onwards border controls in the Schengen area can be completely eliminated,” Merkel told the Bundestag lower house of parliament. (Writing by Madeline Chambers; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
