Russia expects that Egypt will be able to fulfill all necessary air security requirements by the end of October, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said Monday.

"This depends on them, it's hard to give any sort of promises or forecasts on their behalf. We are making an assessment and believe that these comprehensive conditions might be fulfilled around the end of October," Sokolov told RIA Novosti.
