Greece expected some 100,000 new refugees on its islands, from Turkey in the next year. In the past six months alone, the country has accepted 45,000 new refugees, said the Greek government commissioner Manos Logothetis in the first reception of the refugees, the newspapers of the Funke media group reported. This means that Greece can expect around 100,000 new migrants to arrive next year.

Logothetis revealed that the government plans to deport 10,000 asylum seekers from the Greek islands to Turkey next year. The applications of 470 new asylum-seekers have already been approved. The government official spoke of a crisis that was “significantly more critical” for Greece than in 2015, when people moved to other EU countries. This time they stayed on the islands.

“Greece Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis recently urged Germany to accept more migrants in view of the dramatic situation on the island of Lesbos”

Greece Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis recently urged Germany to accept more migrants in view of the dramatic situation on the island of Lesbos. In “Bild am Sonntag” he answered yes to whether Germany should directly accept people from Lesbos.

At the peak of the refugee crisis in 2015 and 2016, thousands of people were transferred daily from the Turkish coast to Lesbos and other Greek Aegean islands. Since the EU refugee agreement between Turkey and the EU in March 2016, the number of new arrivals on the islands has decreased significantly. For some time now, however, more people have been reaching Europe via the Aegean.

Despite the tense situation, Germany sent significantly fewer officials to help the Greek asylum authorities on the islands this year, the Funke newspapers reported, citing information they had gathered from the EU asylum agency Easo. According to the details, in 2019 the federal government sent a total of 80 asylum experts to the Greek islands, including from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bamf), to help register the refugees. According to Easo, there were 124 civil servants from Germany in 2018, and 130 in 2017.
