ATHENS - Greece's migration minister on Monday slammed EU partners for their unwillingness to share the burden of hosting migrants entering the bloc.

EU migration ministers in June decided to create a voluntary mechanism designed to redistribute migrants from their first destination to other members of the 27-nation bloc to ease the burden on the frontline countries. "There must be a symmetry between the responsibility taken on by the first host countries and the solidarity all EU countries must show," the minister told a press conference in Athens.

With its long land and maritime border with Turkey, Greece has been a key destination for people fleeing poverty and conflicts since an acute migration crisis began in 2015. It has often denounced the lack of EU solidarity.
