FARS* - Foreign Ministry issued travel advisory on Saturday, warning nationals of the recent outbreak of swine flu in Georgia.
A notice published on Foreign Ministry’s portal today reads, “Regarding the recent outbreak of swine flu in Georgia, it is advised that Iranian citizens refrain from traveling to the country, unless it is absolutely necessary.”
