MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. The work on resumption of flights between Russia and Egypt is in progress, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media.
"This is one of the most important issues on the agenda of Russian-Egyptian relations. It was discussed at the meeting the Russian and Egyptian presidents held the day before yesterday (on the sidelines of the G20 summit). This issue is in progress."
Peskov said that during the meeting in Hangzhou the leaders of two countries agreed that the contacts on the level of experts will continue. In particular in the coming days a delegation of high ranked experts from Russia will visit Egypt and continue consultations with Egyptian colleagues.
The talks on resumption of air links with Egypt have been going on since late 2015.
In November 2015, the air traffic between the countries was suspended after the terrorist attack onboard of the aircraft by the Kogalymavia air carrier that was flying from Sharm el Sheikh to St. Petersburg. Then Peskov said that the measure was introduced not until the end of the investigation but until a proper level of security is ensured.
