Egyptian airports reject Russian security

Posted 29 March 2016 · Add Comment

The Egyptian Airports Company has rejected the terms established by Russian security experts for the resumption of passenger flights to Egypt.

Earlier this month, foreign minister Sameh Shoukry said that Egypt agreed to Russia’s recommendations regarding airport security following the attack of a Russian aircraft in October.
 
However regarding the terms, Adel Mahgoub, chairman of the Egyptian Airports Company, said: "The idea is completely unacceptable, because it violates Egypt's sovereignty."
 
Mahgoub commented that the Egyptian security measures had been praised by international security inspectors.
 
Russia's transport minister Maxim Sokolov said Russia aims to work permanently in securing Egyptian airports, with its own hands-on presence within Egypt’s airport security system.
