Developments in Afghanistan and Border Protection Dominated KYSEA Meeting

ATHENS — Developments in Afghanistan and planning for border protection dominated the meeting of the Government Council for Foreign Affairs (KYSEA) chaired by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday.

According to a government statement, the priority remains the coordination for the safe return of individuals and their families who cooperated with the Greek forces from Afghanistan.

The coordination of all required actions has been undertaken by the foreign ministry.

The planning was discussed both at European and bilateral level as well as at national level for the need to protect the borders and to avoid a new humanitarian crisis.

According to government officials, the Greek authorities are always on alert both at land and sea borders to prevent illegal entry into the country.
