Greece deported 396 illegal migrants to Turkey since last March

ANKARA, May 9 (KUNA) — Turkey announced that it has received so far about 396 illegal migrants from Greece in line with the agreement signed between Ankara and the European Union on March 18 that calls for sending back to Turkey all migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey, in a bid to prevent the flow of migrants to Europe.
Turkey sent about 125 Syrian refugees who were staying at refugee camps to Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Fenland and Lithuania, said spokesman for Turkish Foreign Ministry Tango Balijaj on Monday during a news conference.
All illegal migrants, including 14 Syrians, arrived in the Greek islands were sent back to Turkey, he added.
Balijaj, meanwhile, saw that all ceasefire agreements in Syria as “just ink on paper” as Russia and the Syrian regime are constantly killing civilians.
He stressed that his country is seeking mainly to reach a real agreement to stop clashes in Syria, referring that Turkey affirms the necessity of the opposition’s presence in the negotiating table in Geneva to resume talks, concurrently with the cessation of hostilities and the start of a political transition.
