Washington, DC – Greece is the first stop for many migrants coming from the Middle East. Renee Montagne talks to Christos Panagopoulos, Greece’s ambassador to the U.S. about E.U. attempts to curb the flow of migrants. Panagopoulos tells NPR’s Renee Montagne “that it’s obvious that all these hundreds of thousands of people, they don’t come from the Mars from the outer space,” adding that “almost exclusively, all these huge amount of desperate people, they are coming through Turkey in order to be pushed to the Greek shores.”
