CAIRO – 2 July 2018: Minister of Immigration and Expatriate Affairs Nabila Makram has headed Monday to Cyprus in a short visit to meet Cypriot and Greek officials with the aim of preparing for the second “Roots Revival Week.”

Makram is expected to be received by the Cyprus Presidential Commissioner for humanitarian affairs Photis Photiou and the Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Terence Nicholas Quick to prepare for the seven-day “Roots Revival” initiative, also known as “Nostos the Return 2.”

Sponsored by President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi, the initiative comes as part of a cooperation protocol signed by the three countries last December. The protocol aims to bring back to Alexandria Cypriot and Greek people, as many of them used to live in Alexandria.
