Cyprus relocates 76 Afghan, Syrian migrants to France

Cyprus’ Interior Ministry said Thursday 76 Afghans and Syrians seeking international protection have been relocated to France under a European Union program to ease the burden on Mediterranean countries receiving large numbers of migrants.

CYPRUS TO CRACK DOWN ON FAN VIOLENCE AT SPORTING EVENTS

The ministry said in a statement the relocation is one of several planned in coming months. A total 210 people have been relocated to other EU countries, including Germany, Bulgaria and Romania, in the three months since such transfers began.

Cyprus has sent 76 Middle Eastern migrants to France, a move consistent with a multinational agreement for European Union member states to intercept them from Mediterranean countries.

The ministry said the program “constitutes tangible support and solidarity for Cyprus which is first in the EU in the number of individuals applying for international protection relative to its population.”

PRESIDENT OF CYPRUS SETS DEFENSE SPENDING GOAL AT 2% OF GDP

Some 21 European countries signed a declaration in June 2022 on the voluntary solidarity program to help Mediterranean member states through relocating asylum seekers or recognized refugees or through financial contributions.
