Greek Deputy Minister for Migration Policy Hopes to See Turkish Observers at Refugee Centers

As the official announcement that Turkish observers will be assigned to refugee centers on Greek islands stirred up some deep emotions among many Greeks, Syriza government officials have gone on the offensive in an apparent effort to justify the decision.
The presence of Turkish observers on refugee centers is consistent with the signing of an agreement for the relocation of refugees and migrants and constitutes an international practice, said Deputy Minister for Migration Policy Yannis Mouzalas, according to
“I wish them [the Turkish observers] to come,” said the deputy minister, “because Turkey won’t be able to deny the increase of illegal migrants and refugees, since the Turkish observer will be present during the counting along with Greeks and Frontex representatives.”
The deputy minister went on to say that this action “in no way violates Greek sovereignty but only in the mind of those who oppose the Syriza-led government and malicious people.”
In addressing the latest developments in the Idomeni camp, Mouzalas said that it is extremely difficult to evacuate the entire camp since all refugees want to move to the core of Europe but no country wants to accept them.
