Main opposition New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras on Friday met a delegation from the European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) at ND party headquarters in Athens and was briefed on EU efforts and initiatives to restrict illegal migration on a Community level.

Samaras apparently asked the committee members to exert greater pressure on member-states to activate European policy on the issue and show solidarity toward Greece as a member of the Community by strengthening the role of the EU border agency Frontex and exerting pressure on Turkey to abide by the re-admission agreements it has signed with Greece. He also called for accelerating the process for the signature of a similar agreement between Turkey and the EU.
