Petsas: Events at Moria Raise National Security Concerns

September 10, 2020

ATHENS — "It is already clear that the events taking place in Moria raise serious concerns over national security, humanitarian issues and the protection of public health," government spokesperson Stelios Petsas said on Thursday, during the daily press briefing.

"For these reasons, the situation that has arisen in Moria since dawn on Wednesday can't continue," he added.

According to the government spokesperson, "at the meeting held yesterday morning with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in the chair, a decision was made for a coordinated mobilisation to provide immediate support, housing, food and health protection to these vulnerable people, but also for decisiveness in guarding our borders, which are also the external borders of Europe."



BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/I.
