Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy has invited Russian experts to conduct the final inspection of security at Egyptian airports to expedite the resumption of air traffic between Egypt and Russia, Egypt's Ministry of Civil Aviation said Tuesday.

CAIRO (Sputnik) — Fathy is currently on a visit to Moscow discussing with Russian officials the resumption of regular flights. On Monday, Fathy met with Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov.

"Fathy invited Russian experts to visit Egypt to resolve all remaining issues as soon as possible. The Russian side agreed to visit Egypt in the next few weeks," the ministry said in a statement.

Russia suspended all flights to and from Egypt last fall after a Russian A321 plane crashed in the Sinai desert on October 31 while flying from the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg following a terrorist attack claimed by the Daesh jihadist group, outlawed in Russia.

All 224 people on board died in what has become the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history.
