EU interior ministers could discuss the expulsion of Athens from the block's borderless Schengen area, Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kalinak said Sunday.

PRAGUE (Sputnik) — On Monday, EU interior ministers are scheduled to hold talks on the extension of temporary border controls within the Schengen zone.

"Possible exclusion of Greece from the Schengen [area] could also be among the topics of EU interior ministers' meeting in Amsterdam on Monday," Kalinak said as broadcast on state television.

She added that Greece should be forced to change its approach to the resolution of migrant crisis in order to send out all the undocumented migrants, which could arrive in Greece, to the countries they would come from.

Europe is struggling to find a solution to a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The EU border agency Frontex detected over 1.83 million illegal border crossings in 2015, while some 880,000 of refugees arrived solely in Greece.
