Greece will strengthen security at the border with Turkey to prevent illegal migration. About it informs Associated Press.
“Europe does not border on countries in which there is a war. And most of the arriving people are not at risk in the last transit country, so it is important to redefine how migration policy and border security work, ”the agency quotes Greek Minister of Migration Affairs Notis Mitarakis.
The agency notes that the increase in illegal migration is associated with the seizure of Afghanistan by the Taliban terrorist movement.
To enhance security, another 250 military will be sent to the border with Turkey. Now the border is guarded by 1.5 thousand people, which is 500 more than at the beginning of last year. In addition, about 800 border guards will be additionally deployed at airports and regions close to the border.
