Head of mission of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Egypt Laurent de Boeck said Tuesday that Egypt provides a unique experience in embracing immigrants. 

De Boeck's comments came on the sidelines of the Week on Migration, Culture and Creativity, held at the French Consulate in Alexandria.

Several million immigrants live among the Egyptian people with ease and are provided with the opportunity to participate in society on an equal footing, De Boeck added.

Syrian refugees residing in Egypt are but one example of how Egyptians welcome and embrace immigrants, De Boeck noted.
