Belgian FM calls for better intelligence-sharing with police

Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders explains what more can be done to catch terrorists. Beyond better intelligence sharing at the top, he says police officers at the borders of EU countries need to receive more information about potential suspects. He also tells FRANCE 24 why he wants to increase his country's defence budget.

Didier Reynders also believes the strict new immigration laws in Denmark are "not a good idea", and says the threat of a British exit from the EU is "an opportunity to discuss the future of Europe".

Finally, he tells us how Belgium’s border is going to change this year. For the first time since 1843, it is swapping land with the neighbouring Netherlands.
