"We do not interfere with the investigation into the tragedy. But we, of course, we are following the developments, and call on the authorities to provide transparency with regard to the review of the causes by the international community," Mohamed Orabi, the head of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Egyptian Parliament and former Foreign Minister, told RIA Novosti.
He also expressed hope that the Russian tourists would return to Egypt in the near future.
Shortly after the incident, Russia and Egypt established an international, Cairo-led investigative committee to carry out an inquiry into the crash. In addition, the sides coordinated their efforts to strengthen security, particularly at airports, while Russia suspended flights to and from Egypt, underscoring that it was not a political move, but an effort to ensure the safety of Russian passengers.
