Foreign Ministry announcement on the demarches made by the Head of Greece’s Liaison Office in FYROM with regard to the violent incidents in Idomeni
The Head of Greece’s Liaison Office in FYROM, Ambassador Theoharis Lalakos, has made two severe demarches since this morning regarding the unacceptable incidents that took place today in Idomeni.
Ambassador Lalakos made it clear in the most categorical manner that the use of violence in no way whatsoever contributes to the resolution of the refugee problem and is in direct conflict with the relevant provisions of international and humanitarian law. Finally, he called on the FYROM authorities to rise to the occasion and exhibit the proper responsibility, self-restraint and seriousness.
