Netherlands advises against travel to Egypt

BRUSSELS, Aug 16 (KUNA) -- The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs Friday advised against all travel to most of Egypt saying the situation is "very restless and unstable." It also advised against all non-essential travel to the Egyptian resorts on the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba.
The resorts are far from the trouble areas, but because of the uncertain situation the ministry is advising against travel as a precaution.
Two employees of the Dutch Ministry are to arrive tonight in Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh to monitor the situation.
The Ministry said it is in close contact with other EU countries and that its travel advice is in line with that of most other EU countries. (end) nk.bs KUNA 162321 Aug 13NNNN
