  • [01] "I have to defend Greece on the protection of external borders,"Austrian Defence Minister tells ANA-MPA

    The Greek-Austrian relations at Defence Ministers' level are excellent, Austrian Defence Minister Hans Peter Doskozil said in an exclusive interview with ANA-MPA.

    He also said that he agreed on many issues with his Greek counterpart Panos Kammenos.

    The Social Democrat politician clearly distance itself from the Christian Democrat Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner and her positions on the guarding of the sea borders. "I have to defend Greece on the issue. Hungary has land borders, it has built a fence and around 200-300 people cross the borders every day ... Greece has sea borders, and it is even harder to protect them. On the issue of protection of external borders, Greece can't be accused of."

    During his visit to the refugee camp at Schisto, Doskozil found that the refugees are satisfied and underlined: "Greece should be thanked for that issue. What it is doing, it is doing it for the whole of Europe," he said.

    Asked if the Syrian refugees will stay in Greece, the Austrian minister said: "I think we have to assess the situation at a European level and ask who will be granted asylum and then consider the issue of distribution.
