Mouzalas denies creation of new hotspot on Mytilene
Alternate Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas ruled out the creation of a new hosting center (hospot) on Mytilene in a letter to Mytilene mayor Spyros Galinos.
“As you already know, me and the government are doing whatever possible for the immediate decongestion of the island of Mytilene and of the other islands that host migrants and refugees” Mouzalas said, adding, however, “this aim cannot be achieved at the expense of the EU-Turkey agreement.
The agreement is our country’s duty to Europe and has the support of almost all the political forces of and cannot be called into question.”
