Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis stressed yesterday the necessity of finding a balance between the need to protect Greece's borders and that of protecting the rights of asylum seekers forced to abandon their homes.
Addressing an event to raise public awareness on refugee issues, organised by the Greek office of the UN High Commission for Refugees with the support of the Greek foreign ministry, Bakoyannis stressed the need for "European solidarity in practice and not just in words" to countries like Greece, which has been facing a surge in illegal migration.
