BONN, Germany, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- In a speech opening the European Police Congress, in Bonn, Germany, Monday the German Interior Minister urged more cooperation in the war against terror.

Interior Minister Otto Schily called specifically for an improvement in the flow of information and more concerted efforts in border control, reported the Deutsche Welle.

In his address to the 600 delegates, Schily criticized European Union efforts for being too laborious and he encouraged those present to push for improvements to get improved communicaitons among countries and to share database information.

However, he said he would not follow the United States and set up a color-coded terror warning system.

"We must be very aware that we do nothing to panic people while maintaining the utmost vigilance," Schily said.
