Migrants and refugees continue to try and cross the borders at Evros, while the Greek police together with the military, are patrolling the area with the use of sophisticated technological means, in order to identify those trying to enter the country illegally.

At the same time, the Greek government denies and dismisses as fake news, Turkish claims that people have died by Greek gunfire at the borders.

Minister of State, Giorgos Gerapritis, Minister of Citizen Protection, Michalis Chrisochoidis and Alternate Minister of Immigration and Asylum, Giorgos Koumoutsakos, informed the representatives of the international media in Brussels, of the full extent of Turkish propaganda and Ankara’s plan to send migrants and refugees of different nationalities to Europe.
