PERM, November 24. /TASS/. Egypt’s authorities have permitted Russian specialists to take part in control procedures at the country’s airports, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Tuesday.
"Now we have consent from Egyptian partners to have our specialists take part in control procedures checks. Result of this work will be reported to the authorities and certain decisions are to follow," he said.
He said the Russian air security inspection team had finished its work in Egypt and returned to Moscow to issue recommendations.
Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said earlier resumption of air service with Egypt would depend on the result of air security inspection.
On November 6, the Russian president agreed with recommendations of the National Anti-terrorist Committee to suspend air service with Egypt until the causes of the Russian A321 passenger plane crash were identified. All Russian commercial air companies suspended regular, transit and chartered flights to Egypt from 20:00 Moscow time on November 6.
According to presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov, flights to Egypt will be suspended until proper level of security is ensured. Putin also issued instructions to help Russians vacationing in Egypt return home. By that day, about 80,000 Russian were vacationing in Egypt, a larger part of them have returned home by now.

It fell down 100 kilometers south of the administrative center of North Sinai Governorate, the city of Al-Arish. The plane was carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members. There were four Ukrainian and one Belarusian nationals among the passengers. None survived.
