Deputy Ambassador of Malaysia to Iran and some Chinese tour leaders say that couple of US agents has recently got in touch with them, warning against establishing collaboration with Iran in tourism.

Foreign travel agencies are not allowed to take anyone on a tour of Iran, otherwise it would ban them and create legal problems for the tourists who visited Iran when they want to enter the US,” a report by Mehr news agency said.

 

Recently in a press conference on the sidelines of the International Tourism Exhibition organized in Tehran, Deputy Head of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Iran, Vali Teymouri, stated that few people from the US embassies based in different parts of the world contact the host countries’ travel agencies, intimidating them with prohibiting over any efforts associated in promoting tourism of Iran.

 

“The diplomats explicitly say if the agencies run tours of Iran, they will face serious problems,” he noted.

 

Chinese travel agencies have confirmed his statement visiting Iran. They said the US has by now advised some important travel agencies in China against working with Iran.

 

Also, Rostam Yahya, Malaysian Ambassador to Iran, explained that he has received some letters intimidating him from many US missions warning him against any cooperation with the Islamic Republic in the tourism area.
