Russia, Egypt sign partner on civil aviation security

Russia, however, is not yet talking about resuming charter flights to Egyptian resorts on the Red Sea, once a popular destination for Russian tourists, Sokolov said, adding that this would be "the next stage" of negotiations.

Russian Federation and Egypt signed a protocol on security which would allow direct flights between Moscow and Cairo to resume starting from February 1, the statement said.

According to RT, the direct flights will head to Cairo International Airport at first and then gradually to the airports of Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada.

Russian Federation and Egypt were expected on Friday to sign an air safety agreement that would pave the way for the resumption of flights.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in Cairo on Monday the deal on the resumption of flights could be signed "in the nearest time".
