Greek authorities have begun returning migrants to Turkey under the Agreement previously concluded with the European Union. The aim of the latter is to facilitate the European countries, some of which cannot cope with the influx of migrants, according to the BBC Russian Service.
The migrants have started boarding ferries on the island of Lesbos as they head for the city of Dikili in western Turkey. The Turkish authorities said 500 people are expected to arrive.
As of now, Greece has more than 50 thousand migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.
Earlier, the Head of the European Parliament Martin Schulz said the Agree over refugee crisis, according to which Turkey is to stop the influx of the illegal migrants to the EU, does not guarantee Turkey to receive preference, as well as it won’t accelerate joining the EU.
