Deputy Employment and Social Security Minister Anna Dalara on Monday discussed issues concerning employment, immigration and the granting of asylum with Palestinian Authority Ambassador Samir Abou Ghazaleh.

Dalara referred to the new legislative framework on providing asylum as well as to the considerable progress that has taken place with regard to the incorporation policies of immigrants living and working in the country over a long period of time.

On his part, the Palestinian Ambassador expressed his concern over the fact that many of those applying for asylum declare Palestinian origin, without being, something that creates a negative image in Greek society.
