However, Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminsky claims that the construction of a stable and high barrier equipped with a monitoring system and movement detectors will prevent the influx of migrants from third countries.
Warsaw plans to replace the temporary barbed wire fence with a wall. The construction of the permanent barrier is supervised by the Polish border guards.
