Commission: Commissioner Avramopoulos in Lesvos, Greece

Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos was in Lesvos, Greece yesterday, December 18th, 2017, to discuss urgent measures to address the humanitarian situation in the islands. Yesterday morning, Commissioner Avramopoulos visited the refugee centres in Moria and Kara Tepe together with the Greek Minister for Migration Ioannis Mouzalas, the mayors of the islands of Lesvos, Samos and Chios; respectively Spyros Galinos, Michalis Angelopoulos and Manolis Vournous and the EU coordinator for the implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement Maarten Verwey.

In a statement issued during his visit, Commissioner Avramopoulos said: “I am in Lesvos today to pass a very important message: that we all, Greeks, Europeans, have a humanitarian imperative to alleviate the situation here on the islands, for the migrants as well as for the inhabitants of these islands. Greece has already shown its humanity in dealing with the refugee crisis, a crisis that no EU Member State is able or should be left to cope with alone. We cannot give up now. The European humanitarian tradition must be maintained. So it simply cannot be that refugees are left out in the cold, to brave the worst of winter without a roof over their heads. Solutions must be found today, not tomorrow, not next week, but now. The European Union will continue to stand by Greece’s side in providing those solutions, just as we have been doing till now.”
