CAIRO – 26 August 2017: Egypt bought for the first time in 52 years a building for its consulate in New York City as it had been based in rented buildings. The new headquarters will be inaugurated in a few weeks, according to consul Ahmed Farouk.
As Al-Masry Al-Youm reported on Saturday, Farouk stated that the new building is modernly equipped to better accommodate Egyptian citizens abroad.
The consul’s statements were made during a party held in his honor by the American Coptic Association in New York for his continuous support and help for Egyptian nationals since his appointment in 2012.
