Greece’s Borders Are Fully Guarded, FM Dendias Says

ATHENS – "The country's borders are being guarded and will be guarded fully," Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said in an interview with "Thema Fm" radio on Wednesday, adding that the fence in Evros will be constructed to deal with the influx of migrants that Turkey is using as a threat, both against Greece and against Europe.

"The fence is entirely on Greek soil and with space between the country's borderline and the fence. In other words, there is a safety section in front of the fence toward the border. That has always been the case," Dendias pointed out, while he clarified that the fence does not run along the entire length of the River Evros and will not hinder the work of Greek farmers.

Regarding the reasons why the forces in Evros have been strengthening in recent days, Dendias noted that "it is obvious that the Turkish side has appointed officials with such a remit at a ministerial level, which naturally creates concern in our country," while he also cited statements by Turkish officials indicating a possible resumption of migrant flows seen earlier in the year.
