US official set for border visit

US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland may visit Greece this week with the aim of viewing firsthand the impact of the refugee crisis, sources in Brussels have told Kathimerini.

Nuland may arrive on Thursday and is expected to travel to Idomeni on Greece’s border with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) to visit the refugee camp there, which is expanding by the day due to the small number of people being allowed to cross into the neighboring country.

Authorities said on Saturday that there were more than 10,000 people at Idomeni.

Nuland may also visit a recently built transit center in Diavata, Thessaloniki, sources said.
