DUBAI: Egypt’s Foreign Minister has urged countries to resume tourism activity with them, saying they have taken strict procedures to ensure the safety of tourists, local daily Egypt Today has reported.

Assistant foreign minister for European affairs Badr Abdel Aaty was meeting with a number of ambassadors on Friday, where he also thanked those countries who have already opened their borders with Egypt.

The meeting also discussed relations between the North African country and the European states, including Ukraine, Switzerland, Russia, Norway, and the UK.

International flights to Egypt were shuttered in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has since affected the country’s tourism output.

But local authorities have been encouraging tourists since October in a bid to revive the industry.
