Greece has installed a 40-kilometer fence and a surveillance system on the border with Turkey, fearing the possible influx of migrants from Afghanistan. It is reported by the Russian BBC service.
“We cannot passively wait for the possible consequences,” said Minister of Protection of Greece Citizens Mikhalis Chrysohoidis during a visit to Evros. – Our borders will remain inviolable. “
Earlier, Turkey called on European countries to take care of Afghan migrants. In a telephone conversation with the Prime Minister of Greece, Kiriakos Mitsotakis, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that a sharp increase in the number of people leaving Afghanistan may become a serious problem for everyone.
“The new wave of migration is inevitable, if the necessary measures will be taken in Afghanistan and Iran,” said Erdogan.
