(ANSAmed) – ATHENS, MAY 27 – Greece will send 400 police
officers “as a precaution” to its border with Turkey in order to
block a possible influx of migrants, said Greek police spokesman
Theodoros Chronopoulos.
He said the objective of the deployment is to “strengthen”
patrols along the Evros River, which marks the land border
between Greece and Turkey.
Greek Citizens’ Protection Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis is
scheduled to visit the area Wednesday and meet with police and
local authorities.

The Greek government fears a new migratory wave from Turkey,
following one in February set off by the Turkish government’s
announcement that it wouldn’t stop migrants who wanted to cross
into Europe.

Since that time, thousands of asylum seekers have been
gathered in the Greek border town of Kastanies (Pazrakule in
Turkish).(ANSAmed).
