Peskov: Work under way to create security conditions for flights from Egypt

Additional security will allow Russia to resume air traffic with Egypt

Measures are being taken to create additional security conditions that will allow Russia to resume air traffic with Egypt, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

"I cannot tell you anything regarding this matter. Probably, such questions should be put to special services. As you know, as far as Egypt is concern, work is being conducted by our appropriate representatives and their Egyptian colleagues," Peskov told reporters, after being asked about a possible impact of the results of the inquiry into the crash of the Russian Airbus A321 passenger airplane in the Sinai Peninsula and information that special services have identified the perpetrator of this terrorist attack.

"It was said at the very beginning, when air traffic was suspended, that it would stay suspended until the conditions needed for the security of our citizens were created. Consequently, work is now under way to achieve this," he added.
