Mr. Dendias from there onwards, referring to immigration, stressed that Greece is not going to allow it to be migration to be instrumentalized, adding that this is a challenge that European countries may soon face.

“We have witnessed similar moves many times in the past and I will make it clear to everyone that we will not allow this to happen again”, he said, pointing to Turkey. “Recent incidents on the borders of Poland, Latvia and Lithuania show that no European country is safe from this threat. Afghanistan may be geographically far away, but it is very, very close”, Dendias added.
