Greece did an excellent job guarding Europe’s border, says German Minister

German Deputy Interior Minister, Helmut Teichmann said that Greece did an excellent job guarding Europe’s border, but fell short of criticising Turkey for its illegal actions and dangerous behaviour.

He also called the relocation of 50 unaccompanied minors from Greece to Germany on Saturday the first step of many to come.

“We are taking a first step now and taking 50 unaccompanied children, but I can say from now on that it will not be the last. We are ready to take on a total of up to 350 children,” said the German Deputy Foreign Minister in an interview with ERT.

At the same time, he urged other European Union countries to take part in the initiative to relocate unaccompanied minors.

“Germany has always stressed, along with nine other EU states and our Greek counterparts, that we are looking for a European solution for the Greek islands,” he said in reference to the eastern Aegean islands that are flooded with illegal immigrants.
