The “conditions” for tearing down the fence along the Greek-Turkish border in Evros do not exist at present “but neither is this the issue,” Alternate Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Toskas said on Monday.

“This fence does not stand in the way and send the refugees to the islands. This is a theory that does not stand up to scrutiny using any logic. Nor can we equate this 12-kilometre-long fence and say it is the same as the inhuman fences in Central Europe,” Toskas told the radio station ‘Vima FM’.

He noted that the Evros fence blocked the land border between Greece and Turkey where there was no river.
