Another 120 Recognized Refugees Left Greece for Germany

ATHENS — Another 120 recognised refugees left Lesbos for Hannover, Germany, on Wednesday. This was the last flight from Lesbos to Germany as part of the European Voluntary Resettlement Program.

The Secretary General of Migration Policy, Patroklos Georgiadis, who was also present at the airport, made the following statement: "A complex programme for the relocation of refugees from Greece to Germany was completed today. It concerned a total of 1,553 refugees. This programme had two characteristics. The first is that it was based on an initiative by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in agreement with Chancellor Angela Merkel. The second is that, for the first time, refugees and not asylum seekers are being relocated to a European country. For the first time, the relocation took place directly from a Greek island, and specifically from Lesbos. In addition to the migration and asylum ministry, the Greek Police and the IOM participated in this effort."
