    This is a great opportunity for the Iranians to travel to Greece and enjoy its beauty and rich history. Likewise, the Greek can also fly directly to Iran. Despite the economic austerities in Greece, every year some Greek travelers visit Iran. Therefore, this will be a very good news for both sides.
