Greek Crisis - Fortified frontiers

The EU’s leaders are heading to Greece today to witness a burgeoning political crisis that has spoiled what should have been a triumphant week for Brussels.

The European Commission had been gearing up for the grand unveiling of its landmark climate law on Wednesday. But Recep Tayyip Erdogan had other plans.The Turkish president’s decision to “open the borders” with Europe over the weekend has prompted thousands of refugees and migrants to head towards Greece in the last 72 hours and spoiled Brussels’ good week.


In Brussels, the crisis has turned attention to what to do about the strained EU-Turkey migrant deal that has dominated the diplomatic relationship between Europe and Erdogan since 2016. Greek authorities accuse Erdogan of “blackmail” and say their country’s borders and Europe as a whole are under “attack”.


The EU’s claims to be a “normality” power will be shredded as its governments hit the bounds of international law. Gerald Knaus, chairman of the European Stability Initiative and one of the architects of the 2016 Turkey deal, notes that Greece’s decision to suspend asylum applications for a month mimics the nativist fantasies of Orban and other populists.

Thanks for the article...... I have read something on Greek papers......but to be honest.... this immigration problem went too far in Greece and I worry that one day maybe the local population had enough of their bad behaviour and I dare not to think what could happen,.......especially from people who have been affected  by their stealing  and other bad behaviour.....and more importanctly they do not want to be vaccinated........
