The Greek government has said it has finalised a plan to construct a wall long its northeast border with Turkey. The motive behind this wall is to stop the influx of migrant’s mass crossing into the country. Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas said Monday that Greece would add 26 kilometres to an existing 10-kilometre section by the end of April.
The project would cost about 63-million-euro ($97.7 million Cdn), he said.
Four Greek construction companies have been selected to build the new wall and upgrade the existing section of fencing running along or close to the Evros River, which forms much of the border between the two countries.
