    Egyptian Parliament's Speaker Ali Abdel Aal told Sputnik on Friday that he believed the case of the crash of the Russian A321 plane in the Sinai desert would be closed soon.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — 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.

    "Egypt's general prosecutor will visit Moscow in the end of July and will present results of the investigation to the Russian side. I think, the case of the crash of the plane will be closed soon, and the flights between Russia and Egypt will be resumed," he said.

    All 224 people on board the A321 plane died with the crash becoming the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history.
