Egypt: Nationals in Syria Urged to Refer to Embassy for Departure Arrangements

The Egyptian embassy in Syria has urged all Egyptian nationals there to come to the embassy for departure arrangements, said Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs Ali al-Ashry Friday 30/11/2012.

In statements to the Middle East News Agency, Ashry called on Egyptians seeking to return home to contact the embassy.

"The move came out of the embassy's keenness on the security of Egyptians living in Syria," he noted.
