NDO – The Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt worked with a delegation from Ho Chi Minh City, led by Director of the municipal Department of Tourism Bui Ta Hoang Vu, in Egypt on December 30.

The two sides discussed measures to support victims of the recent bomb blast, on December 28, so that they can return to Vietnam as soon as possible.

They agreed to coordinate with local authorities to first bring eight healthy people in the tourist group back to Vietnam, then they will finish all necessary procedures to repatriate the bodies of three dead victims.

The remaining three seriously injured victims will have to wait for conclusions from local doctors and they will come back Vietnam when their health conditions are stable.

Vietnamese Ambassador Tran Thanh Cong affirmed that the Embassy will attempt to bring healthy or slightly injured tourists to Vietnam in the next one or two days.

Meanwhile, representatives of the travel agency Saigon Tourist said that it will make every effort to assist victims and their relatives in returning home.

The Embassy and the delegation from Ho Chi Minh City also met with families of bomb victims who flew to Egypt to bring their relatives home.
