Cazeneuve says France hadn't been informed about the increased Belgian border checks. "When you take such a decision, you can engage in dialogue first, and inform the country involved. This hasn't happened."
While Belgium is afraid refugees will come to Belgium from France, Cazeneuve says that "the traffic is busy in the other direction", since many refugees are entering France coming from Germany, taking a route through Belgium or crossing the border with France directly.
The Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon says that Belgium followed all necessary procedures to inform Europe and France. He insists that the checks are necessary.
