Alternate Migration Min Briefs Greek MEPs on Events at Greek Border

March 3, 2020

ATHENS – Alternate Migration and Asylum Minister Giorgos Koumoutsakos on Tuesday made a series of telephone calls to Greek MEPs, briefing the country’s European Parliament deputies on the situation at the Greek border.

According to a ministry announcement, Koumoutsakos outlined the situation created by the “new, Turkish-guided, migration flows” and the measures already taken by the Greek government do deal with the emergency conditions at the border. He noted the need to immediately sensitive political groups in the European Parliament regarding the need to show solidarity toward Greece in its efforts to protect its borders, which are also the borders of Europe.

“The conclusion arising from the talks was that Greek MEPs, within the framework of their parties’ political positions, will support the efforts made by Greece at this crucial time,” the announcement said.


ATHENS - A deadly earthquake in Turkey, a deadly train collision in Greece and both Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan facing tough re-election challenges in May elections has brought a caesura in tensions - for now.
