The enhancement of border guarding, fastest asylum procedures as well as immediate return to their country of origin for those who are not eligible for asylum, are the new government’s goals. The crucial refugee-migration issue was on top of the agenda during a meeting chaired by the Prime Minister with the participation of the European Commissioner for Migration, Dimitris Avramopoulos, that took place at the Maximos Mansion.

This meeting was followed by another one between the Prime Minister on Immigration Policy, Mr. Avramopoulos, the Minister of Citizen Protection Michalis Chrisochoidis and the Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yorgos Koumoutsakos.
