Lord Alfred Dubs: Greece is doing a great job on refugee issue

Greece is in a very difficult financial situation but it is working hard on the refugee issue, Lord Alfred Dubs said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

“You are doing a great job, but I think that you need more help,” he underlined.

Alfred Dubs visited Thessaloniki, northern Greece, to see the living conditions of unaccompanied children – refugees in our country. “Initially we focused on Calais because of the situation there, and the fact that it was closer to Britain. But now, Britain will be getting some of the unaccompanied children in Greece,” he said.

He stressed that this country should “strengthen its support not only to children refugees, but all refugees” and other countries should do the same adding that “Europe did not show the necessary solidarity on the refugee issue.”
