CAIRO, November 7. /TASS/. Egypt has urged all the countries to share information about the crash of Russian A321 plane over Sinai, the head of international commission looking into the causes for the crash, Ayman al-Muqaddam, told a news conference held in the Egyptian capital on Saturday.
"I have said that we are ready to accept all information related to the crash, from any side," al-Muqaddam said. "We need any information... And if any side is willing to provide us with this information, we have no objections."
"Reports have been appearing in the media and some of them referred to official intelligence sources that testify in favour of a certain scenario," he said. "In connection with this, the commission states that it has obtained neither any information nor evidence to the issue."
"We are urging the sources of these reports to provide us with comprehensive information which will enable us to accomplish the mission," al-Muqaddam said.
"Now the commission is examining all possible scenarios of the disaster," he went on to say. "But no conclusions have been drawn yet."
