    Egyptian Tourism Minister Hisham Zazou has postponed a planned visit to Russia, the ministry's spokeswoman, Rasha Azaizi, told Sputnik Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last week, Egypt's Ambassador to Russia Mohammed Badri told Sputnik that Zazou was planning to come to Russia on November 17-19. The minister was expected to discuss the Russian A321 passenger plane crash in the Sinai Peninsula.

    "The visit has not been cancelled, it is still on the agenda, but it was postponed for a while until the situation clears up," Azaizi said.

    The Airbus A321 crashed in the Sinai Peninsula en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg on October 31, killing all 224 people on board. The catastrophe is the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian and Soviet history.
