EU Commission: ‘Europe Will Never Be a Fortress’, Mass Migration ‘Here to Stay’

Speaking in Brussels on Wednesday, EU migration chief Dimitris Avramopoulos stressedthat the European Commission would oppose any plans to build a fence on the Greek-Turkish border.“We are against building fences, on the contrary, we are in favour of building bridges with neighbouring countries,” he said, after news that more than 6,100 people have entered Greece illegally over the Turkey land border so far this year — a nine-fold increase from the same period in 2017.
