Kyriakos Mitsotakis met in Athens with the Prime Minister of Lithuania Ingrida Šimonytė.
They discussed how to provide adequate reception facilities, expedite asylum procedures, and “efficiently and quickly send back those who are not eligible for international protection”.
“What Belarus is doing is simply unacceptable,” Mitsotakis said after a meeting with Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė in Athens.
Meanwhile, Lithuania intends to allocate 42 million euros to strengthen the border with Belarus. This was announced in an interview with Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland by the Lithuanian Ambassador to Germany Ramunas Misiulis.
According to him, the money will be used to build border fortifications and improve the surveillance system. The Lithuanian Ambassador to Germany said that he expects support from the European Union, since this is a "common problem" with the EU.
