Call for EU help with migrants

Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias has called on the European Union to offer Greece more help with undocumented migrants, including other countries accepting more immigrants to ease the pressure on Greek society.

The public order minister told BBC’s “Hardtalk” program Monday that undocumented immigrants are “a huge burden on our society.”

“The pressure that is being applied on Greek society and the systems that support it are enormous,” he said. “I am saying the EU is not helping us enough.”

Dendias called for more EU funding and an agreement to share the number of migrants being accepted into European societies.
