ST. PETERSBURG, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism) will send its representative to Egypt to assess the situation in that country, the agency’s head, Alexander Radkov told journalists on Thursday.
“A Rostourism representative will be sent to Egypt to assess the situation along with representatives from the Russian foreign ministry,” he noted. “We shall take a decision depending on how the situation develops further on.”
Meanwhile, Rostourism strongly recommends Russian tourists vacationing in Egypt not to leave resort areas, visit big cities or appear at mass protest areas.
When asked whether it would be better to opt for some other vacationing destination, Radkov said, “The situation in resort areas is calm. We shall watch the situation, which is changing rapidly.”
