    Flights not only to and from Egypt, but also to several other countries could be canceled due to terrorist threats, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday.

    MANILA (Sputnik) — During a press conference after the APEC Summit in Manila, Medvedev said:

    "I cannot exclude that we may consider this issue in some cases, I mean the issue concerning flights to other countries. But this hasn't been done yet and I hope it won't happen."

    Russian flights to Egypt were suspended on November 6 after Russian A321 passenger jet crashed over the Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 people on board. Later, Russian Federal Aviation Agency Rosaviation prohibited from November 14 EgyptAir flights to Russia.
