(ANSA-AFP) - WARSAW, AUG 31 - Poland on Tuesday was set to declare a state of emergency along its border with Belarus after a large influx of migrants that Warsaw suspects is being engineered by the regime in Minsk. The government approved the measure, which is now expected to be signed off by President Andrzej Duda in the coming hours. The state of emergency would apply for 30 days and would include a ban any demonstrations at the border as well as an obligation for people in the area to carry identity documents. "The situation on the border with Belarus is a constant crisis," Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told reporters. (ANSA-AFP).
