IRKUTSK, August 4. /TASS/. A new inter-governmental agreement with Egypt will regulate access and participation of Russian specialists in assessment of aviation security measures at Egyptian airports, Russian Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov told TASS on Thursday.
"This document regulates access and participation of Russian specialists in assessment of aviation security measures at Egyptian airports only regarding flights to Russia," Okulov said.
The deputy minister noted that the document is not part of the inter-governmental agreement on air service that regulates frequency and conditions of performing flights between the two countries.
"This is not an amendment to the existing agreement on air service. This (new) agreement deals specifically with participation of Russian specialists and officials that will be allowed to control aviation security measures in Egypt. It really has the status of an international agreement but it is not part of the intergovernmental agreement on air traffic," Okulov explained.
Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said earlier that the inter-governmental agreement on aviation security may be sent to the Egyptian side already this week.
Russia suspended air service with Egypt following the crash of a Russian A321 passenger jet in Sinai.
