Migrants: Schengen, 28 OK on 3-month Greece ultimatum

Formal green light scheduled Friday by Ecofin Council

09 February, 13:27
(ANSA) - BRUSSELS - The ambassadors of the 28 member states gathered tomorrow for the so-called Coreper meeting should approve the Council's recommendations based on evaluations of the Schengen system giving Greece three months, based on article 19.a of the Schengen code, to take care of the shortcomings noted. Moreover the recommendation states that when the three-month deadline expires, article 26 can be activated, extending by two years controls over certain parts of the border. If Greece will comply, European sources said, the second phase will not kick off.

The formal adoption of the recommendation is part of 'point A', or 'without discussion' at the Ecofin Council scheduled on Friday and the three months available for Greece will be calculated starting that day. (ANSA).
