"Jordan is ready to accept Russian tourists from Egypt and Turkey. Russian tourists have been visiting Jordan for 10 years and continue coming," Fayez said.
The minister added that the country, however, does not yet have the capacity to accommodate as many Russians as Egypt did but hoped to increase the number of holidaymakers from Russia.
Earlier in November, Russia announced the repatriation of its citizens vacationing in Egypt following a terrorist act that resulted in the largest disaster in the history of Russian civil aviation. A Russian-owned Airbus A321 crashed en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, killing all 224 people on board, after a home-made explosive device detonated in the passenger compartment.
