A German tourism activist praised Iran’s eye-catching tourist resorts and destinations and historical sites, and voiced Berlin’s enthusiasm for dispatching more tourists to Iran.
“We are looking for the expansion of activities in Iran’s tourism industry,” Publicity Manager of German Sky Air Tourism Company Frank Grafestin, who headed a 10-member delegation, said during a visit to Kashan’s tourism and historical sites on Friday.
He noted that Germany halted tourism cooperation with Iran about six years ago, but after Iran’s presidential election in August 2013, Berlin has sought to expand its tourism cooperation activities with Iran.
Grafestin noted that he traveled to Iran to be more familiarized with Iran’s tourism attractions and capabilities in a bid to be able to conduct better publicity in his country about Iran’s tourism capacities.
Iran and Germany have tried to expand their bilateral relations in recent years through reciprocal visits by the two countries’ officials.
