Moonesan underlined that maritime tourism was among the major kinds of tourism, according to Farsi report by Tasnim News Agency. Moonesan, who is also Vice-President, added that although the potentialities at sea were utilized to promote world's tourism, the potential had not been tapped well in Iran.
He said Iran would bring the cruise ships from Turkey and use them in order to develop local tourist industry.
