MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Russia is doing everything possible to speed up the resumption of flight connection with Egypt, Russia’s Ambassador to Egypt Sergey Kirpichenko said in an interview with TASS.
"The resumption of flight connection between Russia and Egypt is perhaps the most discussed issue of all our bilateral affairs. It is obvious that both countries are quite interested in it," he said.
Kirpichenko drew attention to the fact that the work on improving security of the Egyptian airports is constantly under way.
"The contacts are carried out on the level of Transport Minister of Russia and Minister of Civil Aviation of Egypt in order to solve this task. All the agencies concerned, as well as the Embassy of Russia, are doing everything possible to push closer the time of resumption of flights and return of our tourists (to Egypt -TASS)," he said.
Talks on the resumption of air communication with Egypt has been on since the end of 2015. The air traffic between the two countries was suspended in November 2015, after the terrorist attack on board an aircraft of Kogalymavia company, which was flying from Sharm El Sheikh to St. Petersburg.
