the shadow of the terrorist attack in the heart of Brussels.
The government appear reassuring for the possibility of a blow in the country, noting that “there is no reason for increased concern”. The terrorist attack, however, led to a hasty meeting at the Maximos of the prime minister with the minister of Citizen Protection, Nikos Tosca and the National Defence, Panos kammenos. It is reported that all the competent Authorities are in a state of alarm, while repeated was the meetings and at the operational level in the presence of the National Information Service. Therefore it was decided to increase all security measures in airports, metro, ports, offices, business French, and israeli interests, and embassies.
Strong is the concern at the Maximos Mansion for the “right-wing” and xenophobic reflex which seems to ÎµÎ½ÎµÏÎ³Î¿Ï€Î¿ÎµÎ¯ new carnage, one after the other, EU member states are inclined towards the logic of closed borders and increased border controls. The fear lies in the voluntary basis of the program of relocation, which is scheduled to begin in just 24 hours, as well as increasing the voices that reject the basis of the agreement within the EU. “Europe will need to resist the fear that they create these blind strokes, and to switch to another policy. We expect that Europe will cope with sobriety and composure, that the new terrorist attack,” noted the government’s representative, Olga Î“ÎµÏÎ¿Î²Î±ÏƒÎ¯Î»Î·.
At the same time, the government appear to be particularly annoyed by the attitude of Turkey, as well as the growing refugee flows in the eastern Aegean islands, the Anchor seems to not comply with the commitment to reduce if not arrest the flow. This message passed the Alexis Tsipras in the conversation that he had with the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel in the morning of the Third, which asked for escalation of the international pressure on Turkey. “We still have not seen a reduction in the flows’ noted in ms. Merkel and Alexis Tsipras. Corresponding initiatives from the side of the prime minister is expected within the next 24ÏŽÏÏ‰Î½, with telephone communications with the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk and the Dutch presidency of the EU.
The two issues that have put fire to the Maximus is on the one hand, the reduction of refugee flows, which is in the hand of Turkey and on the other hand, the acceleration of the asylum procedure. Information indicate that this process, which will be done for each person separately with respect to the international law, so that there are no other “goings-on” by the UN, it is estimated roughly that it lasts ten days. This design, however, remains up in the air after it remains to be proven in practice. For that matter expected the over 2,000 experts from EU countries, who will undertake to assist in the work of the asylum within the next few days.
At the same time that the flows continue incessantly, race is given to evacuate the islands and the port of Piraeus and transferred refugees and migrants in hotspots, while the goal is the evacuation and Î•Î¹Î´Î¿Î¼ÎÎ½Î·Ï‚ within ÎµÎ¹ÎºÎ¿ÏƒÎ±Î·Î¼ÎÏÎ¿Ï…. The design of most of the government shall be adjusted, as well as fears expressed about increased caging people because of the delays in implementing the agreement. “We are obliged to not meet again, surprise, we’re in a position to address and number, so that we predict,” she said mrs. Î“ÎµÏÎ¿Î²Î±ÏƒÎ¯Î»Î·.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, is expected to meet for the first time, the newly established Government Council for the refugee and immigration policy under Alexis Tsipras, which is expected to be ratified legislative initiatives to resolve issues related to the refugee crisis with procedures for “fast track”. In the microscope of the Council will be found both the upgrading of the portfolio of Immigration in a separate department with two secretaries (first reception and asylum), and the schedule for the ongoing projects and actions.
Finally, it is essential that it is considered by the prime minister after a telephone conversation with mr. Mitsotakis, be postponed to the Third pre-agenda debate in Parliament on the transparency and the interweaving, as it would send a completely wrong message to the time that the whole of Europe convulsed by the common threat of terrorism, the leaders clash in the national delegation.
