“There has never been a matter of military strengthening on FYROM’s borders as there has never been an issue of an EU country exiting the Schengen zone,” EU Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos on Tuesday said in an interview with STAR TV.

“The EU has never raised the issue of a country exiting the Schengen zone. When deficiencies or mistakes occur, Europe asks to correct them,” Avramopoulos noted. “Countries must meet their commitments,” he underlined adding that as soon as the hotspots start operating, the EU funds will be disbursed.

The Greek Commissioner also said that if the hotspots had already been constructed, many problems would have been averted. He also stressed that Greece is not alone either on economic or political terms.

He stated that Greece has already received 33 million euros out of the total amount of 475 million euros approved. According to the Commissioner, Greece has lagged behind on some issues and argued that hotspots can only be set up within the boundaries of Europe.
