Russia says no new conditions on resuming flights to Egypt

CAIRO, May 29 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that Moscow had not put forward any new conditions for resuming direct flights to Egypt.

Lavrov, on a visit to Egypt, also said Cairo should first ensure travel safety for the flights.

The passenger flights between Russia and Egypt were suspended in November 2015 after a Russian passenger airliner exploded and disintegrated over the Sinai Peninsula, killing all on board. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin, editing by Larry King)
