Poland’s senate has approved a plan to build a €350 million wall along its border with Belarus to prevent migrants from illegally entering the country.
The upper house of parliament gave final approval to the proposed 100-kilometre border wall on Friday after a second vote.
President Andrzej Duda has said that he will immediately sign the law into effect following the vote result.
A draft bill to construct the new border wall was approved by the lower house of the Polish parliament on October 14. It had been backed a day earlier by the country’s ruling conservative government.
