Russian plane crash in Central Sinai

CAIRO: Officials from Egypt’s Foreign Ministry will meet with ambassadors of European Union member states to Egypt Wednesday afternoon to discuss the repercussions of the ill-fated Russian airliner, Youm7 reported.

The meeting is to clarify Egypt’s stance, the “need not to jump to conclusions ahead of the results of the ongoing investigation to clarify the circumstances of the Russian plane crash,” as well as the negative economic impacts resulting from the decisions of some European countries to suspend flights to Sharm al-Sheikh, the ministry said in a statement.

A flight suspension by at least seven European countries to Sharm el-Sheikh followed the plane crash, which killed all 224 passengers and crew aboard. The move is causing a heavy blow to Egypt’s tourism industry.

“The investigation results of the crashed Russian plane will be announced with transparency,” President Abdel Fatah al Sisi said during his visit to the UK last week.
