Turkey recalls officials from Greek islands
Turkish officials stationed on Greek islands overlooking the implementation of a migrant relocation deal between the European Union and Turkey were ordered to return to Turkey a week ago, sources said.
According to the sources, Turkish authorities informed their Greek counterparts that the officials were being recalled from eastern Aegean islands because their passports had expired, but that they were expected to return or be replaced.
An official at the Citizens’ Protection Ministry said that Turkey notified Greek authorities a few days ago.
Meanwhile, the Greek government recognized delays in the processing of asylum applications filed by migrants stranded on the islands.
