The Council of the European Union adopted a resolution on the system of entry and exit from the Schengen zone, strengthening control over the borders of the Schengen zone, the press service of the EU reports.

"Strong control over our external borders is important for the effective functioning of the Schengen zone. The input-output system will help improve external border control, "the words of the Estonian Interior Minister Andres Anvelt on the EU website are quoted.

He added that it would also allow for better identification of foreigners who have visa expired, and will strengthen the fight against terrorism.

The system registers entrances, departures and refusals at the entrance to the Schengen area. It is alleged that this will help reduce the time for passing control at the border, and improve the quality of border checks.

Now the resolution should be adopted by the European Parliament and the European Council. The document will come into force after 20 days after publication in the Official Journal of the EU.

In late August, it was also reported that the EU is considering the possibility of introducing border checks within the European Union.
