Greece calls on NATO following Turkish threats to flood Europe with migrants

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has urged NATO to increase naval patrols in the Aegean Sea following threats made by Turkish President Erdogan to flood Europe with more than three million migrants.

“I asked the Secretary-General and the Alliance, and member states to strengthen their presence in the Aegean Sea with more ships,” Mitsotakis said during a press conference after speaking with NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg in Athens on Thursday, Greek City Times reports.

“We ask for the mission to be expanded to the south Aegean so we can cover the full scope of our country’s maritime borders,” Mitsotakis added.

Last week, Turkish President Recep Erdogan, threatened to flood Europe with 3.6 million migrants if the bloc referred to the Turkish military incursion in Syria as an “occupation”.

“Hey EU, pull yourself together. I say it again. If you try to frame our operation as an invasion, our task is simple: we will open the gates and send 3.6 million migrants to you,” Erdogan said last week during an address to Turkish lawmakers.
