Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini wants to send asylum seekers a message through social media that they should not come to Finland on false grounds. He got the idea from his Norwegian colleague. Minister Soini visited Tromsø and also met with his Slovakian colleague. He says they were both concerned by the Schengen area borders. According to Soini, also the Finnish border control on the external border must be efficient. He points out that all those who are not entitled to an asylum are returned.
