In a joint declaration adopted on 29 August 2015, a number of EU Ministers of Transport, for the Interior and/or for Justice called for more surveillance in European rail traffic in order to prevent, detect and fight better against “violent actions that radicalised individuals may want to commit”. The measures that ministers called for cover the control of passengers and luggage, both in stations and on trains. The participating ministers also called to improve data exchanges between national and European security agencies.
