Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has underlined the significance of the enhancement of bilateral relations between the Islamic Republic and Egypt in all areas, particularly in the tourism sector.
In a meeting with visiting Egyptian Tourism Minister Hisham Zazou on Wednesday, Ahmadinejad said expansion of Tehran-Cairo ties would ensure “peace, security and brotherhood.”
Pointing to a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Iran and Egypt in the field of tourism, Ahmadinejad said cooperation between the two countries in this sector can help strengthen mutual relations in economic, trade and scientific areas.
Mohammad Sharif Malekzadeh, director of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization (CHTHO) and Zazou signed the MoU on Wednesday.
“Tehran-Cairo cooperation in the field of tourism and the signing of the MoU in this regard constitute an excellent starting point that can generate many blessings for both nations,” Ahmadinejad said.
The Egyptian minister, for his part, described the tourism MoU as a “grand measure” and conveyed the greetings of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to President Ahmadinejad./PressTV/
