European nations have been feverishly attempting in the last few days to solve the issue of the thousands of unaccompanied refugee children who are currently living on Greek soil.
A voluntary coalition of European Union states will take in as many as 1,500 migrant children from the Greek islands as a measure of humanitarian support, the German government announced Sunday night.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, another announcement said that Berlin will take in one hundred of these youngsters on its own.
Additionally, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Monday that Zagreb is willing to take a certain number, which he did not specify.
“I don’t see who could oppose the idea of helping children who find themselves in this situation,” he stated.
It is noted that these relocations are not part of the mandatory allocation of refugees and migrants the EU has obliged its member states to participate in as part of the campaign to assist Greece and Italy.
It must also be noted that this original scheme is barely alive today, as several member states have repeatedly refused to abide by Brussels’ demand for migrant relocation.
