Foreign Ministry spokesperson Koutras’ response to journalists’ questions regarding statements by the Prime Minister of Slovakia

Tuesday, 01 December 2015

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Konstantinos Koutras made the following statement in response to journalists’ questions regarding recent statements from the Prime Minister of Slovakia concerning Greece’s position in the Schengen Area:

“The Prime Minister of Slovakia, possibly because he comes from a country that has neither sea nor islands, cannot correctly evaluate all of the parameters and peculiarities of guarding maritime borders, all the more so when these borders are being flooded with thousands of needy people who are escaping from the hell of war.

We extend an open invitation to Mr. Fico, before he renews his search for a scapegoat, to visit one of the Aegean islands to examine the situation on the ground, be briefed by the competent authorities, and form a personal opinion on this issue.”
