Developments in Greece and at the EU level this week have put the migration crisis back in the spotlight. On Monday Greece declared that Turkey is a safe destination for asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Somalia and Syria. In theory this could stem the number of arrivals at Greece borders, as it would allow it to return asylum-seekers from these countries to Turkey. In the meantime, the migration issue was on the agenda of the EU Home Affairs Council meeting on Tuesday, as efforts continue in order to get the European Commission’s proposed migration initiative back on track.
Yannis Palaiologos, Kathimerini’s Brussels correspondent, joins us on The Greek Current to break down the latest developments.
