On Wednesday , the first group of unaccompanied refugees in Greece will set out for other countries in the EU. Twelve children will depart for Luxembourg. The second group of 50 children leaves on Saturday.
The European plan concerns 1,600 unaccompanied minors who will be moved to specific country-members of the EU at the initiative of Greece, as noted in the newspaper EfSyn.
The 12 children will leave their places of residence on the islands of Lesbos, Samos, and Chios. This move relates to an agreement by the Undersecretary of Immigration and Asylum Yiorgos Koumoutsakos and his counterpart in Luxembourg, Jean Asselborn, Secretary of the Exterior, Immigration, and Asylum.
Contributing to this effort were Ylva Johansson, European Commissioner for Home Affairs since 2019, in addition to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Organization for Migration, and the European Asylum Service.
