Greek government spokesperson Stelios Petsas gave a press briefing on the latest developments surrounding the migrant situation, in Athens on Wednesday, in which he addressed Turkish allegations that Greek border forces had killed one migrant and wounded several others during clashes.
Petsas rejected the Edirne Governor's Office's claims that Greek security forces had used live ammunition... Еще against refugees and migrants at their shared border and accused Turkey of «fabricating and spreading fake news.»
«I categorically deny that this happened. These actions are against Turkish obligations as part of its common statement with the EU,» stated Petsas.
Petsas' comments come after allegations made by the Edirne Governor's Office suggesting that Greek security forces killed one refugee and injured at least five others during clashes.
Last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that his government would no longer stop migrants from attempting to enter the European Union, leading to a flow of refugees and migrants towards Turkey's European borders.
