Foreign Ministry spokesperson Koutras’ response to journalists’ questions regarding statements from the Austrian Minister of the Interior

Monday, 25 January 2016

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Konstantinos Koutras’ response to journalists’ questions regarding statements from the Austrian Minister of the Interior, according to which the external borders of the European Union should be moved towards Western Europe if Greece does not improve control of its borders with Turkey:

“We would advise the Austrian Minister of the Interior to weight her words more when referring to the refugee issue and to the supposed responsibility Greece has for it. Austrian Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner should think with a more European spirit and vision, and not based on the domestic political balance in Vienna. She could thus contribute towards continuation of the political and democratic integration of Europe, the logic of which does not allow for quarantines or exclusions. The cold war is over.”
