Polish officials to support Greece in EU border protection

Around 120 experts from Poland will travel to Greece to assist in the protection of the European Union's southern border.

Some 60 border guards, 40 police officers and 20 experts from the Foreigners Office are set to travel to the southern EU country to support the Frontex border agency and the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the Interior Ministry said on Sunday.

The ministry's website said that the Polish experts will help deal with “the ongoing migration crisis in Europe, the need to strengthen the protection of the external borders of the European Union and the Schengen area, as well as to support countries most affected by the mass influx of refugees”.
