Moscow, September 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency Rostourism will probably review restrictions on travel to Egypt after representatives visit that country with officials from the Russian Foreign Ministry, agency head Alexander Radkov told journalists on Tuesday.
He said “they had talks with Egyptian tourism minister Hisham Zazou the day before and were well informed about measures taken by the republic to ensure safety of tourists in resort zones and tourist centres”.
“It was decided that a group of inspectors from Russia’s Foreign Ministry and Russia’s Tourism Agency would be sent to Egypt to assess the situation in that country and probably correct their recommendations,” Radkov added.
Egypt's tourism minister has expressed the hope that Russian officials would withdraw their recommendations not to visit that country. “We are looking forward to Russia withdrawing its negative recommendations concerning our resorts. We hope and make everything possible to open the direction for Russians by November,” he noted.
