Egypt: Tourism Minister Welcomes Return of Iranian Tourism to Egypt

Egypt's Tourism Minister Hisham Zaazou has welcomed the return of the Iranian tourism to Egypt, adding that Egypt welcomes any additions to its tourist destinations from all over the world without any restrictions.

However, the security authorities' consent is a prerequisite for the resumption of Iranian tourism to Egypt, said Zaazou.

At least a half million Iranian tourists will visit Egypt per year, a matter that will help boost the Egyptian tourism, he added.
