Migration ministry says ‘different views’ were presented during SYRIZA meeting

The ministry of migration sought to respond to press reports on Monday that Minister Yannis Mouzalas said he would resign during a meeting of the SYRIZA’s political secretariat on Monday, after party members allegedly criticized him on his handling of migration.

“As part of SYRIZA’s intra-party democratic operation, different views were presented,” the ministry said in a press release.

“Before the meeting completed, the minister left to participate in a scheduled meeting with the Vice President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans” it added.
