PM Tsipras: The implementation of the EU-Turkey agreement will not be an easy task

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras described the EU-Turkey agreement as positive while welcoming EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos at Maximos Mansion on Monday.

“We now have to climb an uphill, because the implementation of the agreement will not be an easy task. However, if we did not have the agreement, we would have to face a domino of unilateral actions. Therefore, this European solution is important,” the prime minister noted and stressed the need of its immediate implementation and coordination in order to be efficient. That is the reason why he established a special government body which he will chair, as he said.

He also referred to two conditions that need to be met so that the agreement is successful.
On his part, the European Commissioner estimated that the quick implementation of the agreement will improve the situation and estimated that Greece is moving rapidly.
