Abstract: Let $ G$ be a connected, simply-connected, and almost simple algebraic group, and let $ \sigma$ be a Dynkin automorphism on $ G$. Then $ (G,G^\sigma)$ is a symmetric pair. In this paper, we get a bijection between the set of $ \sigma$-invariant MV cycles (polytopes) for $ G$ and the set of MV cycles (polytopes) for $ G^\sigma$, which is the fixed point subgroup of $ G$; moreover, this bijection can be restricted to the set of MV cycles (polytopes) in irreducible representations. As an application, we obtain a new proof of the twining character formula.
