Mr. Mitarakis pointed out that special attention needs to be paid to how we manage communication issues related to immigration so as not to allow some to misinterpret them by spreading the message that the policy (on immigration) has also changed.

The minister also stated that “we have pressure at the border, but we have low arrivals because we effectively guard our borders. He pointed out that in 2021 we had the lowest flows of the decade and estimated that – according to the data so far – this year will have the second lowest.
“Undoubtedly there is one from the neighboring country attempt to instrumentalize the immigrant but also an attempt to expel immigrants due to the economic problems they are experiencing”, said the minister.

He added, however, that he has already spoken about the matter and has informed the competent Commissioner, the UN High Commissioner, the International Organization for Migration, the competent committee of the European Parliament, while Frontex is also fully informed and cooperating with the Greek police regarding the matter of the borders.
