President Abdel Fattah El Sisi launched "Reviving Roots" initiative during the tripartite summit that grouped Egypt, Cyprus and Greece in Nicosia in 2017.

The initiative comes as a part of the diaspora program signed between Egypt, Cyprus and Greece, which aims to gather Cypriots and Greeks or their descendants in Alexandria for a return trip to the place where they or their ancestors once lived.

In a statement on Sunday, Emigration Minister Nabila Makram stressed commitment to the coronavirus precautionary measures during the activities being held within this context.

She added that the initiative furthers ties among the three countries.

Activities of the first edition of the initiative were held in April 2018, while the second edition in November 2018 and the third edition in 2019.
