MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAStatement by the  government spokeperson Olga Gerovasili regarding today’s press reports on the refugee crisis: 
1) Greece’s suspension of the Schengen Treaty has never been raised in the EUframework. However, untrue reports on this are being reproduced, in an effort to blame Greece for mismanaging the refugee and migratory flows.
2) Greece has been implementing, despite great difficulties, its European obligations. That is, inter alia, setting up hotspots, building accommodation centers and exercising effective border management. This was clearly acknowledged during the recent meeting of eight EU Member States in the margins of the EU-Turkey Summit. Meanwhile, Greece expects its European partners to fulfill their own commitments.
3) Unfortunately, European circles insist on distorting reality and keep believing that Europe’s future can be built on phobic reflexes, fences and exclusion. These same circles have been promoting during the last days this hostile environment towards Greece by unacceptably threating the country with exiting the Schengen Treaty. And unfortunately, some in Greece uncritically adopt these approaches
