Greece is determined to create fence along Turkish border

The government reiterated two days ago its intention to build a fence along the country’s border with Turkey to stop the crossing of illegal migrants.

This statement received criticism from European officials, who advised Greece to reform its asylum system instead. The Greek government rejected the advice. “‘It is duplicitous that the same people who accuse Greece of not living up to its obligations under the Schengen agreement are now criticising it because it is trying to strengthen its borders,” Greek Citizen Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis said.
