MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held a telephone conversation with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry to discuss the two countries’ cooperation on Syria within the UN Security Council, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. According to the ministry, the conversation was initiated by Egypt.
"The parties exchanged views on key aspects of the regional agenda placing special attention on the situation in Syria and ways to settle the Syrian crisis, including Moscow and Cairo’s cooperation within the UN Security Council," the ministry’s statement reads. "A number of practical issues concerning Russian-Egyptian cooperation were also touched upon."
Resuming air traffic between the two countries is one of the main topics on the Russian-Egyptian agenda. Air service was temporarily suspended after a flight by the Russian airline Kogalymavia travelling from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to the Russian city of St. Petersburg had crashed on the Sinai Peninsula as a result of an on-board explosion, believed to have been a terror attack.
