Migration minister to start meetings with opposition leaders
Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas will start on Monday a series of meetings with opposition party leaders to discuss ways to tackle the refugee crisis, the ministry announced on Friday.
Mouzalas is expected to brief party leaders on the decisions of the recent informal summit meeting for migration, the responsibilities Greece has undertaken following the decisions of the European Council and specific measures put forward by the government.
“The aim of the ministry is to create the conditions for a consensus among political parties of the democratic front and fixed communication channels for a better and more effective consultation, so as to put on one side the sterile confrontations and recriminations around this huge issue,” the press release said.
The first meeting will be with DIMAR leader Thanasis Theoharopoulos on Monday followed by a meeting with PASOK leader Fofi Gennimata.
