MOSCOW, November 25 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry still recommends tourists not to visit Egyptian cities where rallies and clashes are reported, ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“Prohibitive measures are unlikely to help,” he said. “And it is worth to be careful and prudent.”
On November 21, the Russian Foreign Ministry expressed concern over ongoing events in Egypt and recommended tourists to refrain from making trips outside their resorts.
“The events that are underway in friendly Egypt arouse concerns,” a ministry official said. “Over the past several days, mass riots were reported in Cairo, Alexandria and other big cities of Egypt. These riots turned into clashes of protesters with police. According to the incoming reports, hundreds of people were wounded, casualties were reported.”
