Greece Says Relocated 1271 Minor Refugees to Other EU Countries

ATHENS – The European Union has closed its borders to refugees and migrants and many countries won’t take any of Greece’s overload, but 1271 minors in the country were relocated in others, the New Democracy government said.

They were sent to 13 of the other 26 countries in the EU apart from Greece, which still is dealing with scores of thousands of asylum seekers who came via Turkey from their homelands, primarily Syria and Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Migration and Asylum said the minors were found homes in other countries over the last two years, said InfoMigrants, with Turkey taking back only a relative handful of refugees denied asylum, not meeting the terms of an essentially-suspended 2016 swap deal with the EU.

The transfers were accomplished through a Voluntary Relocation Program but the countries to which they went weren’t named.
