CAIRO, November 7. /TASS/. Egypt still does not have the only version of the reasons, which caused the crash of Russia’s A321 above Sinai, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said during a joint conference with Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto on Saturday.
"At this stage of the investigation into the crash, none of the suggestions is apparent," he said adding Egypt still had not received information, on the basis of which certain countries have limited flights to Egypt.
"The published data related to the accident with the Russian plane, about which we hear, has not been presented in detail to the Egyptian security services," the minister said, adding "we expected we shall be given all technical information on the issue."
"Foreign intelligence services have not cooperated with Egypt in investigating into the reasons of the crash," he said adding Cairo "understands the concerns of several countries" after the crash of A321.
