  • [01] Gov't on possible Frontex-Turkey agreement

    (ANA-MPA) -- The Greek government declared on Thursday that any agreement between the EU border agency Frontex and Turkey will not be accepted unless it is clearly stated that Greek borders are also EU borders.

    Responding to a tabled question in Parliament by the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) over a draft agreement between Frontex and Turkey which, according to KKE, disputes Greece's sovereign rights, Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Spyros Vougias stressed that the text of the agreement has not been finalised and that it will be presented in Parliament once it is finalised.

    Vougias added that the foreign ministry and his ministry share similar concerns, noting that Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis has underlined in letters addressed to his Turkish counterpart that an agreement between Frontex and Turkey should clearly state that Greece's borders are EU external borders, in order to be accepted.
