Today, Sunday, the Egyptian ambassador to Iraq, Walid Muhammad Ismail, revealed that tourism agreements with Iraq are close, while specifying the reason for the delay in the opening of the industrial cities with Iraq and Jordan.
Ismail said in a statement to the official agency: “Generation stations have been established in Iraq, some of which are for the transmission and distribution of energy,” noting that “Egypt is fully prepared to contribute to the electrical sector, in addition to Egyptian companies that have experience and a quality that distinguishes them in their work.”
He added, "The company continues its work despite the city's exposure to terrorist attacks, but it continued its work and completed the project."
In another context, he added, "The procedures for granting the Iraqi visa to the Egyptian citizen are very difficult due to the security situation," expressing "his hope that the procedures for granting the visa will be eased."
He continued, "The tourism sector was greatly affected by the Corona pandemic, noting that" injury rates in Egypt are stable and able to receive tourists."
He stressed, "There will be more agreements between tourism companies than there is currently," explaining that "the number of weekly flights between the two countries amounted to more than 14 weekly flights, all of which are full."
Regarding the industrial and free cities, the Egyptian ambassador stressed that "there are some bureaucratic procedures that have hindered the opening of the industrial and free cities between Iraq, Egypt and Jordan, but the project is in place and the effort is underway to complete it as soon as possible."
