Greek Public Order Minister Michalis Chrysohoidis on Tuesday presented to the European Union council of justice and interior ministers Greece's proposal for the establishment of a European Watch of Immigration.
The Watch, he said, would be responsible for the collection and exchange of data on immigration in Europe, as well as the drafting of scientific reports based of this data, which will be supplied by member-states in close cooperation with other Union agencies, such as Europol and Eurostat.
The council also discussed the draft a new directive on the reunification of families of immigrants who legally reside in the Union.
