Greece’s government expects Balkan states to shut their borders completely in the coming months, according to Ekathimerini.
Armed border guards from six of European Union states are helping Macedonia protect its frontier and build 10ft-high razor-wire fence along its border with Greece.
The fence to stop hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants travelling north is due to be completed within the next few weeks.
If Alexis Tsipras continues his open doors policy, there will be a build up of hundreds of thousands of illegal Mulsim migrants inside Greek borders in 2016.
Tsipras has a wafer thin majority in parliament, and is facing strikes, riots as well as the challenge of a new opposition leader, albeit a scion of one of the political elite, and has little room for maneouvre domestically.
