After the earthquakes, Greece tightened security measures in the Meriç region, which forms the Turkish-Greek border, with concern about the possibility of a new influx of refugees from Turkey and Syria to head to Europe.
In this context, the border guards in Miric have been reinforced with more than 100 new personnel and patrols have been increased.
Expect a new wave
With the weather improving, the prospect of a new influx of refugees from March is making the Greek government think. Public Order Minister Takis Theodorikakos, who made a statement about the danger of the refugees concerned, said, “There really is such a danger, but the Meriç border cannot be crossed. We are ready for all possibilities,” he said. Asylum and Migration Minister Notis Mitarakis said, “Aid should be provided to Turkey and Syria before a new refugee influx begins.
