Greece has sent back a group of 10 Syrian migrants to Turkey, the Greek Ministry of Public order and Citizen protection announced Wednesday.
The migrants, including five men, one woman, and four children, were transferred to Turkey's southern Adana province from the Greek island of Lesbos, as part of an EU-Turkey migrant deal, the ministry said in a statement.
According to an EU-Turkey deal to prevent mass migration to Europe, Turkey is to readmit all irregular migrants crossing into the Greek islands from the country.
A total of 926 such migrants have so far been returned to Turkey under the readmission deal that came into effect last March.Güncelleme Tarihi: 29 Mart 2017, 22:46
