Greece’s deputy defense minister said Tuesday he could not confirm nor deny whether migrants who left a Greek transit camp and crossed into Macedonia Monday had been returned back to Greece.

 

“What I know is that any procedure will take place via the usual diplomatic means,” Dimitris Vitsas told Greek TV when asked to comment on a Reuters report saying about 600 migrants had been sent back to Greece on Monday or overnight.

 

“I’m not aware of anything further in order to confirm or deny this.”
