President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi returned to Egypt on Friday after a three-day visit to London where he met with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

During a news conference which was attended only by a journalist from Egypt and one from Britain on Thursday, Cameron defended the UK decision to suspend flights between Britain and the Egyptian red sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh after a Russian airliner crashed in Sinai on Saturday, killing all 224 on board.

El-Sisi said he understood Britain's concerns.

"We received [British security] teams, we cooperated with them and they checked the security operations - they were happy with that. And we are still ready to co-operate in this particular regard, not necessarily on one airport but on all airports," Sisi told the conference.

"I have found complete understanding and appreciation of the Egyptian efforts. We talked about the actions needed to make sure that this will not have any negative ramification on the future of tourism in Egypt and that in the soonest time possible we restore the movement of British tourists."

El-Sisi and Cameron also discussed mutual cooperation and ways to strengthen ties between the two countries, according to Egyptian state-run news agency MENA.

The Egyptian president also met with UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon before heading home.

Sharm Chaos
I am a huge fan of President Sisi... but i must ask, who on earth gave the permission for UK planes NOT to be allowed to land in Sharm?? It seems that now there is proof after looking at the black boxes of the Russian plane that all the talk is true... this is from Isis, and yet with THE WHOLE WORLD watching,the best we can do is cause more chaos by refusing flights...and security at the airport being caught on camera using their phones and not watching scanning machines and accepting bribes to allow people not to queue... all this while on security alert?? Is this how we must always allow the world to see us?? in a negative way?? Good bye tourism!
