GRECIA. Uniunea Europeană vrea să instaleze refugiați în casele private ale oamenilor. Mitropolitul grec al Tesalonicului se opune spunând că se încalcă dreptul la proprietate.
Nota Redacției: E vorba de înțelegerea UE - țările din Balcani din oct 2015 la care a fost chemat şi Iohannis.
Octombrie 2015 Înțelegere UE - Țările din Balcani.
Acordul final a inclus angajamentul Greciei de a primi 50.000 de migranți.
Grecis s-a angajat să crească la 30.000 până la sfârșitul lui 2015, numărul de locuri pe care Grecia îl are de a găzdui migranții - arătând că în prezent au aproximativ 7,000-10,000 locuri de cazare.
Un numar suplimentar de 20.000 de oameni trebuie să fie adăpostiți în locuințele private din Grecia.
Declarația comună a mai fixat că, alte 50.000 de locuri ar trebui să fie disponibile în țările balcanice aflate mai la nord.
Iohannis chemat de Merkel la întâlnire nu ne-a spus niciodată dacă România s-a angajat şi ea să ia din cei 50.000 alocați țărilor balcanice din nord, şi dacă da, câți a acceptat să ia.
Mitropolitul grec Antim de Alexandropolski (foto) a criticat intenția Uniunii Europene de a instala refugiați în casele private ale cetățenilor aflați pe teritoriul regiunii grecești Tracia - informează în premieră Agenția de știri Lăcaşuri Ortodoxe.
"În regiunea noastră, trăim în pace, creștinii împreună cu musulmanii locuiesc alături, de peste 100 de ani.
În toți acești ani, nimeni nu a putut afecta echilibrul existent în relația dintre noi.
Dar dacă se stabilesc aici musulmanii care provin din zone în care funcționează pe scara largă un Islam fanatic, acest echilibru va fi distrus, iar asta nu-şi doresc nici măcar grecii musulmani"- a declarat Episcopul.
Mitropolitul și-a exprimat speranța că politicienii nu vor permite acest rău:
"Nu vom rămâne la malul mării și să ne sacrificăm. Dacă voi vedea că există un pericol real, le voi cere oamenilor să plece".
Mitropolitul Tesalonicului, Antim, si-a exprimat, de asemenea, îngrijorarea cu privire la situația refugiaților.
Comentând şi cu privire la protestele locuitorilor împotriva înființării de centre de primire pentru imigranți și a planurilor de cazare în casele particulare, Episcopul a spus:
"Sub masca asistenței refugiaților, asistăm la încălcări ale drepturilor de proprietate ale oamenilor"

Greece agrees to host 50,000 refugees as part of new EU plan
Greece committed on Sunday to opening enough reception centers to house 30,000 refugees by the end of the year, with the United Nations to provide another 20,000 places, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said.
"We will increase reception capacities to 100,000 places in Greece and in the western Balkans," he said following a meeting of 11 European leaders in Brussels.
"I commend the Greek prime minister for this commitment to increase reception capacity in Greece to 30,000 places by the end of this year, with the UNHCR to help provide at least 20,000 more places in Greece."
Meeting in Brussels as another woman and two children died at sea off Turkey, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met leaders of nine countries on the route from the Aegean to Germany taken this year by half a million people, defying EU borders and unfurling razor wire.
After talks throughout Sunday evening that began with what officials described as a round of leaders "venting" at each other's conduct, the 11 governments issued a pledge to work together, along with a 17-point action plan that includes United Nations-aided accommodation for 100,000 people, half of them in Greece.
"Unilateral action may trigger a chain reaction," the joint statement read - reflecting what is already fact, as states have variously sealed off borders or moved and deposited busloads of undocumented migrants at their neighbours' frontiers.
"Countries affected should therefore talk to each other. Neighbours should work together along the route," the statement said.
Meeting host Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Union executive, said: "We have made very clear that the policy of simply waving people through must be stopped."
Merkel, whose poll ratings are sinking as she has opened Germany's borders to hundreds of thousands of Syrians, called for the meeting just 10 days after the last of several full EU summits devoted to the migration crisis.
She said it was urgent to find a humane solution for tens of thousands of people stuck behind closing Balkan borders as autumn turns cold and wet.
"The pictures of the last few days are not in line with our values," she told reporters after extracting agreement from her peers to provide shelter, food and care for people on the move, helped where needed by EU aid and cheap international loans.
"Europe must show it is a continent of values, a continent of solidarity," she said. "This is a building block ... but we need to take many further steps."
She also stressed the need to continue negotiations with Turkey, the main transit country to Europe for not only Syrian and Iraqi refugees but also large numbers of Afghans and Pakistanis viewed in the EU as unwanted economic migrants.
Greece in focus
Tsipras said he was satisfied with the outcome. A leftist, who has had a rocky relationship with Berlin and Brussels since his election in January, began months of brinkmanship before a bailout deal in July kept Greece in the euro zone.
In the frontline of the migrant wave this year, Greece has been criticised for failing to implement EU law on registering new arrivals. Officials said Tsipras had initially resisted calls for Greece to greatly expand accommodation for asylum-seekers and accept more border guards from other EU states.
However, the final agreement included a Greek commitment to increase to 30,000 by the end of this year the number of places it has to host migrants - officials said it currently has some 7,000-10,000. A further 20,000 people should be sheltered in private accommodation in Greece, the statement said, while another 50,000 places should be available in countries further north.
The United Nations refugee agency UNHCR, whose chief was at the meeting, will work with governments on that programme.
Frustrated by the way nearly half a million people have been able to cross Greece largely undocumented this year, other EU states are using a mixture of financial incentive and promises to take in asylum-seekers from Greece - if Athens cooperates and, after weeks of delay, starts registering all who arrive.
Among other elements of the plan, EU member Slovenia will receive 400 extra police to handle an influx of migrants this month following Hungary's closure of its border with Croatia.
Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar, who before the meeting echoed other senior figures in warning that a failure to agree on handling the migration crisis could see the European Union itself unravel, called the deal "a step in the right direction".
He said Juncker's plan to coordinate an exchange of information among Balkan states, of which some are in the EU and some merely in line to join, should help reduce chaos. Angry words across frontiers drawn out of the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s have revived painful memories around the region.
Before the meeting Cerar said: "If we don't deliver concrete action, I believe Europe will start falling apart."
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has fenced off borders with Serbia and Croatia, was also at the meeting. He has been a sharp critic of Merkel's emphasis on sharing out asylum-seekers across the 28-nation EU according to national quotas and says Europeans should resist mass immigration by Muslims.
On a day when the sweeping victory of Poland's Eurosceptic right in a parliamentary election highlighted a growing popular mistrust of the European Union and open borders, the leaders in Brussels also stressed EU plans to speed up the deportation of those, notably from South Asia, deemed not in need of asylum.
Merkel stressed, however, that lasting solutions to the crisis would take a long time yet.
