A technical team of the European Union’s Directorate General on Migration will visit Cyprus on Tuesday to meet with local officials and discuss additional assistance that the island needs due to increased migration flows.
The visit comes in the aftermath of discussions held in Nicosia between the EU’s Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos, and the Ministerial Committee of Cyprus last month, and following Nicosia’s requests to the EU over the increased influx of migration to the island.
As reported by CNA, the Interior Minister of Cyprus Constantinos Petrides stated, ”At the instructions of Avramopoulos, a technical team of the DG General on Migration will visit Cyprus to meet Cypriot officials to examine ways for additional assistance through the Emergency Funds of the Asylum Funds.”
