Hotspots in Greece and Italy will be ready in four weeks the latest, European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos said in an interview with Sueddeutsche Zeitung on Tuesday.

Avramopoulos also warned of increased refugee flows in the coming months.

Referring to the EU member states that refuse to contribute to the joint EU effort, he said that some governments tell ‘no’ to everything, but they do not inform their citizens on the consequences of their refusal.

He also noted that the European Commission has proposed any kind of support, either economical, technical of infrastructure to these countries adding that nobody can accuse the EU of not helping find a solution.
