  • [01] Interior minister receives Swedish minister of migration, asylum policy

    Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Sunday received Sweden's minister for migration and asylum policy, Tobias Billstrom, who is paying an official visit to Greece.

    After the meeting, Pavlopoulos said that taking into consideration that Sweden will assume EU's presidency next July and will focus especially on immigration issues -- as these have been processed during the French EU presidency with the Immigration Treaty and the Asylum -- it makes the Swedish minister's visit very important.

    "Today, we discussed two issues: Sweden's preparations for the EU presidency and Greek positions and the contribution of the Swedish presidency to the organisation of the International Forum on Migration to be held in Athens," Pavlopoulos said.

    On his part, Billstrom expressed his satisfaction for the meeting and the cooperation with the Greek minister, adding that he anticipates Greece's contribution and assistance during the Swedish presidency.
