Greece to Participate in Roots Revival Conference with Cyprus, Egypt



Greece’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Terens Quick is in Cyprus for the preparation of “Nostos – The Return 2”, a tripartite roots revival conference between Greece, Cyprus and Egypt.

Quick will meet with Egypt’s Minister of Immigration and Expatriate Affairs, Nabila Makram and Cyprus’ Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Fotis Fotiou.

The first edition of “Nostos -The Return” was held in Egypt in April under the auspices of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his Greek and Cypriot counterparts.

“This meeting will coordinate all issues related to the Nostos event, which involves the second and third generation youth from the three countries, and agree on its activities and preparations,” Makram said in a statement.

Quick said that this tripartite meeting identifies features for the second edition of the event, specifically for Greek, Egyptian and Cypriot youth, in order to consolidate relations and ensure good relations between the three countries.
