    LONDON (Sputnik) — UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed during a phone conversation Thursday to keep in close touch on the investigation of the Russian plane crash in Egypt, the prime minister's office said in a statement.

The President expressed his thanks for the call and his understanding for our concern for the safety of British citizens.
