    MOSCOW, Russia - Russia’s Minister for Transport Maksim Sokolov and Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathy signed an agreement in Moscow on Friday to resume regular flights between Moscow and Cairo. 

    Russian and Egypt have signed documents on the resumption of direct flights between the two countries after a 2-year break.

    "We also agreed to continue our contacts in the spring, around the month of April. We will continue our negotiations regarding the decision on the rest of Egypt's airports," Fathi added.

    Moscow suspended flights between Russia and Egypt after a Russian passenger plane was attacked from a terrorist attack over the Sinai peninsula, killing all 224 people on board in 2015.

    It is expected that the resumption of flights will help the struggling Egyptian tourist industry that has been greatly effected because of terrorism.
