Egyptian billionaire offers to buy an island from Greece or Italy and provide jobs so fleeing migrants can ‘build a new country’


Naguib Sawiris

Announcing the initiative on Twitter, telecoms tycoon Naguib Sawiris said: ‘Greece or Italy sell me an island, I’ll call its independence and host the migrants and provide jobs for them building their new country’.

Maybe Germany could just sell him Greece.
