The European Commission does not consider that Greece’s border with FYROM is fully closed, as according to EU spokesperson on immigration, Natasha Bertaud, the countries of Western Balkans continue being open to a dialogue and European Commission “continues acting as a coordinator between them”.
While there are thousands of refugees and migrants stuck in Greek-FYROM borders, Mrs. Bertaud said answering to a reporter’s question that those responsible at the borders know more details and that the Commission is quite happy with the agreement signed at EU Summit on 18-19 February, reiterating that the agreement provided for the immediate and automatic update of all sides.

The Commission spokesperson believes that the borders are not completely closed and communication channel within Western Balkan countries remained active during the weekend.

Mrs. Burton also stressed that mobility across borders is recorded and reiterated that European leaders committed themselves to find a “European solution”.
