PINTÉR: EU MUST PROTECT BORDERS 'UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES'

 

A declaration approved by the European Union’s interior ministers in Brussels on Wednesday says that the bloc’s external borders must be protected under all circumstances, Hungary’s interior minister said after the meeting.
Referring to the situation arising from migration pressure on the Greek-Turkish border, Sándor Pintér noted that the Greek government had turned to the EU for help. Hungary has offered to send a 65-strong border guard unit to Greece within the framework of an operation by the EU’s border agency Frontex, Pintér said. He also said the bloc’s interior ministers had voted at the meeting to provide immediate financial assistance of 350 million euros to Greece and, if necessary, an additional 350 million euro package.
