European tour guides have voiced their willingness to travel to Iran to attend the World Federation of Tourist Guides Associations convention in January 2017 defying the western media attempts to tarnish Iran’s image as a secure and politically stable country.

During the annual gathering of the European Federation of Tourist Guides Associations in Moscow (November 17-22), a group of Iranian tour guides attended the event and promoted the WTFGA 2017 convention in an attempt to clear the cloud of uncertainty and fear that has been hanging over Iran, Mehr News Agency reported.

“Almost 70% of the attendees said they would definitely come to the WFTGA 2017 event,” read a statement by Mohsen Haji Saeed, who led the Iranian delegation to the Moscow gathering.

Iran beat Denmark and Singapore to win the bid to host the summit with 18 votes earlier this year, amid concerns among some member states that questioned Iran’s ability to host a secure convention.

Participating in the Moscow event was part of a campaign by Iran’s Federation of Tourist Guide Associations that aims to promote Iran and to encourage more members to attend the convention. The campaign started in July.
