Pub­lic Or­der Min­is­ter Nikos Den­dias yes­ter­day urged the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion to put pres­sure on the gov­ern­ments of Bangladesh, Pak­istan, Iraq and other coun­tries with high rates of em­i­gra­tion to ac­cept the repa­tri­a­tion of their cit­i­zens by the Greek au­thor­i­ties. Greece is a main tran­sit point for il­le­gal mi­gra­tion into the Euro­pean Union. Dur­ing a meet­ing of the EU’s Jus­tice and Home Af­fairs Coun­cil in Lux­em­bourg, which was at­tended by EU Com­mis­sioner for Jus­tice Ce­cilia Malm­strom, Den­dias also briefed his coun­ter­parts on Greece’s re­vised ac­tion plan for asy­lum and mi­gra­tion.
