  • [01] Greece pushing for refugee, migrant resettlement through Turkey

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni) – Greece is pressuring at the EU-Turkey summit in Brussels for a solution that will include returning refugees and migrants from Greece to Turkey, on the condition that it they will be directly resettled to EU countries, government sources said on Monday.

    According to the same sources, the Visegrad Four (Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland) are disagreeing with the return of Syrian refugees to Turkey, claiming it is not a safe third country.

    The Greek government criticized this stance, saying its "hypocritical", as these countries are not accepting refugees, do not cooperate for any solution and at the same time they're closing the borders, the sources said. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is asking for a decision on the refugee crisis to be taken tonight, saying that if there isn't, then the Balkan route should reopen to allow refugees to continue their journey.

    The Greek side is also saying that if the "Plan A" is not accepted – the return of refugees and migrants to Turkey – then we must go to "Plan B" which entails returning only migrants to Turkey.
