If you do not help us financially, we will send a huge wave of refugees to Europe, threatens the Greek Defense Minister. The threat is mainly directed towards Germany.
It is the German Press Agency DPA (Deutsche Presse-Agentur) that has published the threat, which is also quoted in German media.
The economic situation seems to be desperate for the far left Greek government, whose threats are becoming increasingly desperate. Greece has certainly been given an extension of the loans and will receive additional financial assistance until the end of June - but the situation is yet described in several German media as desperate.
While the Greek Defense Minister threatens, the German Süddeutsche Zeitung reports that Greece, according to sources in Brussels, is considered to be "on thin ice" in financial terms.
In February, some government officials received no salary and current expenditure was funded by taking money from the state pension funds.
The immigrant threat is that Greece would issue travel documents to migrants so that they could travel "to Berlin".
The Defense Minister comes from the far left politician Alexis Tsipras coalition party. Tsipras has promised the Greeks to avoid more austerity measures and that some should be withdrawn.
- If other euro zone countries hurt Greece then they should know that migrants will receive papers to go to Berlin, says Defence Minister Panos Kammenos, according to DPA.
- And if the refugees also happen to be members of the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS), Europe has itself to blame, because they have betrayed Greece, says the Defense Minister.
The Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said on Friday that Greece could become the gateway for millions of immigrants and thousands of jihadists if the country collapses economically.
