  • [01] Greece asks for Frontex assistance

    ANA-MPa/Greece has asked the EU for the immediate deployment of Rapid Border Intervention Teams (RABITS) and the EU Agency for the Management of the Operational Cooperation at the External Borders (FRONTEX) operational means on its eastern borders to stem the mass influx of undocumented migrants, in letters sent by Citizens Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis to EU Internal Affairs Council chairman Annemie Turtelboom and Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem.

    Papoutsis, on behalf of the Greek government, sent letters to Turtelboom and Malmstroem on Sunday stressing that "a mass influx is noted daily on Greece's external land borders with Turkey of third-country nationals who attempt to illegally enter Greek territory with the aim of accessing other EU countries".

    The minister also stressed in the letters that "the increasing pressure of the illegal migrant flows at the Greek borders is a clearly European problem and requires a corresponding European solution in the context of EU solidarity".

    In a quick reply, Malmstroem said on Monday morning that RABITS teams, coordinated by FRONTEX, "will be deployed at the external border and will ensure mutual assistance between Member States of the European Union; they will act under the authority of Greece and will be in place for a limited period of time", in the first activation of the RABITS since their creation in 2007.
