We are concerned by the situation on the Greece-Turkey border. We remain committed to supporting Greece and Turkey's efforts to manage migration effectively and are working both bilaterally and with our international partners to this end. On 3 March, the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary discussed the issue with their Turkish counterparts and we have discussed it with the Greek Foreign Minister. We welcome ongoing discussions between the EU and Turkey and continue to support the implementation of the EU-Turkey deal, which is crucial in effectively managing migratory flows.
