Greece to extend fence, deploy more officers at border with Turkey


Greece will deploy an additional 250 border officers at the Evros river and extend the fence at its border with Turkey. 

Minister of Civil Protection Takis Theodorikakos revealed the plans on Sunday. 

“On these borders of our country with Turkey, the borders of the European Union with Turkey, we have completed 37 kilometers of the fence that has enhanced the security of our border,” he said.

“A secure border is a precondition for Greeks everywhere to be safe.”

Theodorikakos is currently touring the region with local political and security officials.
