Minister of Foreign Affairs N. Dendias' statement upon his arrival at the extraordinary EU Foreign Affairs Council (Zagreb, 06.03.2020)
“What we will discuss today, among others, is the situation evolving in Greece’s eastern sea and land borders with Turkey. What we are facing there is a massive movement of migrants towards Greece’s and Europe’s borders.
Migrants that have been residing in Turkey for years. We have clear proof that this movement has been created and orchestrated by Turkey. And I would like to be clear on that: the European Union will not allow the instrumentalization of human suffering.
