Greek Coast Guard officers saved a total of 74 migrants off the islands of Lesvos and Farmakonisi over the past three days as the influx of people from neighboring Turkey ebbs.

The rescue efforts were relatively unhindered as weather conditons have been good.

Although an agreement in March between Turkey and the European Union has led to migration flows into Greece radically reducing from the hundreds that had been arriving per day in recent months, the islands of the eastern Aegean are still struggling with large migrant populations as the processing of asylum applications is a lengthy procedure.
