Tensions within the European Union over the migration crisis went up by a notch Friday as Greece refused to welcome Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner.
Mikl-Leitner wanted to visit a refugee camp in Greece, but her wish was turned down, a Greek Foreign Ministry spokesman told dpa.
The diplomatic measure follows the decision of Athens to recall its ambassador to Vienna for consultations amid Greek concerns that border policies in Austria and Balkan countries are stranding refugees and migrants in Greece.
