  • [01] Alternate Migration Min Mouzalas visits Belgium Embassy in Athens

    Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas on Wednesday visited the Embassy of Belgium in Athens to express his condolences to the Ambassador for the victims of terrorist attacks as well Greece's support to the Belgian people.

    "It is a day of mourning for the Belgian people, for all of Europe," Mouzalas stated. "The following days are days of mourning for the terrorist attacks, the unjust violence, and of reflection on how Europe will be able to balance, to combine the security and prosperity with the freedom and human rights," he said.

    [02] It's time the Greeks acted united, President Pavlopoulos says

    President of Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Wednesday in his message towards the Greek Diaspora on the national holiday of March 25 stressed the need for a mutual front of responsibility and coordination for all Greeks, either they live in Greece or abroad, in order to successfully address the major challenges of our times and to ensure a better future for Greece and the later generations of Greeks.

    "The example of our ancestors who fought in 1821 should inspire us and guide us in perpetuity. Especially during the current critical times for Greece," the President underlined and added: "All Greeks, whether they live in Greece or are part of the Greeks living abroad, must create a united front of mutual responsibility and coordination of actions in order to successfully confront the great challenges of our times and to ensure a better future for Greece and the later generations of Greeks."

    "It is high time the Greeks acted as a single body, making the best use of the important potential and the exceptional quality of human resources of the Greeks of Diaspora."

    [03] Primal concern to avoid children dying at Idomeni, Alternate Migration Min Mouzalas says

    Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas on Tuesday in an interview with Alpha TV expressed fears that children may die at Idomeni.

    "Our concern is not to let children in the camp of Idomeni die, but this is something that no serious person could guarantee amid such a large refugee crisis," he noted and added: "What I can guarantee is that we will increase our efforts to prevent this from happening."

    For the integration of refugees in Greece, Mouzalas stressed that "in the past 15 years the society has integrated some 1.5 million refugees and migrants. We already have schools for migrants as well as special integration programs. But we are not yet there. We are still in the process of setting the situation under control."

    [04] Less refugees and migrants arrive over the last 24h

    Refugee and migrant flows have been reduced over the last 24 hours on the islands of the northeastern Aegean. Overall, just 474 people arrived; 327 on Lesvos, 110 on Chios and 37 on Samos.

    Nobody arrived on Wednesday as a result of strong winds blowing in the area.

    A total of 1,847 identified refugees are stranded on the islands of the northern Aegean.
