"Turkey allowed, in violation of its obligations, according to the 2016 joint statement, a boat with thirteen people to start from Turkish territorial waters. It did not rescue the passengers in the Turkish territorial waters and the Greek Coast Guard, which puts the protection of human life first, was forced to enter Turkish territorial waters in order to rescue ten people and, unfortunately, according to the information, three more people are still missing in Turkish territorial waters. Until I came to the Parliament, I was not informed that Turkey has responded to this incident," Minister of Migration and Asylum Notis Mitarachi said on Friday in parliament.
