Three Syrian refugee families arrive from Greece

On Tuesday three families, or eighteen people - including six children - arrived to Latvia from Greece under the EU relocation scheme, the Citizenship and Migration Affairs Office (PMLP) told the press.

According to the PMLP, among the relocated people are skilled laborers: a farmer, an auto mechanic, an engineer, a teacher, a social worker and a designer.

The PMLP reports that the asylum seekers claim they're skilled at foreign languages like English and German.

So far, Latvia has admitted 47 people under the EU-wide relocation program, but has in principle agree to take in more than 500 refugees.
