The issue of migration, the changes in New Democracy and the Greek economy dominated a meeting between EU Commissioner for Migration and Internal Affairs Dimitris Avramopoulos and newly elected New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday.

“We will have the opportunity to make an in depth discussion on the issue that concerns Greece and all Europe. I would also like to get informed on the way that Turkey deals with that important issue as it has not yet met in full its commitments,” Mitsotakis noted.

He also underlined that Turkey has great responsibilities, but despite the pressure on the country with two million refugees in its territory, the future seems positive thanks to the action plan signed with the EU.

On his part, Avramopoulos said that Turkey will assume its responsibilities and inflows to Europe will stop. However, he said, there is a wider issue with the geopolitical instability which unfortunately intensifies.

“Greece can play a specific and stabilizing role according to its potential, coming out of its introversion, highlighting and showcasing what the country means for the wider region,” the Commissioner stressed.
