Selava Omar – – “Agencies”

The problem of refugees stranded in Greece remains a problem for European governments, and the fear remains of the occurrence of a major wave of asylum as a result of the Turkish government’s lack of commitment to the immigration agreement signed with the European Union, and the exploitation of the refugee issue for political gains.

In this regard, during his talks with the Greek government, the head of the government of North Rhine-Westphalia, called for a European solution to the refugee crisis in Greece.

“Lachit” said yesterday Monday, during a meeting with Greek Prime Minister “Kyriakos Mitsotakis” in Athens “Refugees who enter Greek territory also enter European lands, so this crisis can only be solved in a common European way,”

And the European Union has made little progress over the years in reaching an agreement on asylum reform, Italy, Malta, Spain, Greece and Cyprus are pressing for a mandatory mechanism for the distribution of migrants.

In contrast, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia and Slovenia do not want to commit to quotas for receiving migrants. In a letter to the European Union Commission, the seven countries confirmed their rejection of mandatory distribution “in any form”.

And the European Union Commission plans to submit new proposals in September.

“Lachit” he also plans to visit the overcrowded refugee camps on the island of “Lesbos” on Tuesday.

There are many stranded immigrants, who illegally enter the European Union from Turkey, on the Greek islands in the eastern Aegean.
