Alternate Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas referred to the condition of thousands of refugees who are stranded in Greece, in his address on Sunday to SYRIZA Central Committee.

Mouzalas said that a huge effort has been made in the last period – during which 850,000 refugees and migrants have passed through the country – and reiterated that the country must be prepared for a large number of refugees. He added that for the time being the effort focuses on where these people will be temporarily hosted.

He also said that the refugees must understand that this way is closed.

Referring to Europe he said that “we had a bad time but not because it is our fault” and said that Greece needs economic support. He clarified that Greece wants the money to be channeled into national planning because “those who come to work here will use the country’s infrastructures”.
