BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Greece will do whatever it takes to decrease the flow of migrants and to solve the humanitarian problem, Tsipras added.
"The Commission initiative for this informal meeting was a positive initiative. However, a critical partner in this – Turkey- it is not invited. So, today the discussion will be among the countries of the corridor of the refugee flows. But everybody knows that at the end of the corridor there is an entrance, so if we will not be able to agree with the country at the entrance, it will be very difficult to find a solution," Tsipras told reporters.
Over 710,000 migrants arrived in the bloc during the first nine months of 2015, according to the EU border agency Frontex.
