Belgium Lifts Warning Against Travel To Egypt’s Red Sea

Belgium has lifted its official warning against travel to resorts in parts of Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, the Belgian foreign minister announced on Sunday.

“From now on we are not advising against trips to the Red Sea and Aqaba Gulf resorts,” said Didier Reynders in a statement.

“However, travelers to those places have to be extremely cautious and abide by security instructions issued by local authorities and travel agencies,” the minister added.

A little over a month ago, violence erupted in different parts of the country following the 14 August dispersal of two large protest camps by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

A number of countries, including Japan, the United States, Belgium, Germany, France and Russia, responded by putting in place warnings for their citizens against travel to Egypt.
