Mitarachi - Frontex Meeting: Agreement on cooperation in voluntary returns of irregular migrants

Greece and the Ministry of Migration and Asylum reached an agreement with Frontex on a series of activities which are expected to bring better results in the process of returning irregular migrants to their countries of origin. 

Συγκεκριμένα, τη Δευτέρα, ο Υπουργός Μετανάστευσης και Ασύλου κ. Νότης Μηταράκης, συναντήθηκε με τον Deputy Executive Director του Frontex, αρμόδιο για τις Επιστροφές, κ. Lars Gerdes, όπου και επιβεβαιώθηκε η συμφωνία των δύο πλευρών για πλήρη εφαρμογή ενός ολοκληρωμένου σχεδίου, έτσι ώστε να ενισχυθούν οι δράσεις για τις εθελοντικές επιστροφές. 

Frontex, for its part, will provide tools and technical support, at an administrative and operational level, throughout the process followed for voluntary returns. The relevant action plan is expected to be signed in the next few days in Brussels and immediately afterwards a Special Group will be set up to monitor its implementation, in which the European Return Center of FRONTEX and officials of the Greek Ministry of Migration and Asylum and the Hellenic Police will participate.
