Egypt – Disappearance of Flight MS804

By Ministère des Affaires Etrangères de la République Française

The Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation has just issued a statement on a report by the investigation committee established following the crash of EgyptAir MS804. The investigation will continue in order to determine the exact causes of the crash.

As has been the case since that tragic accident, France and its experts remain at the disposal of the appropriate Egyptian authorities to contribute to this investigation.

France hopes that the transfer of this report to the Egyptian prosecutor-general’s office will open the way to returning the victims’ remains to their families as quickly as possible. That is the wish that the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Jean-Marc Ayrault, has expressed several times to his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry.
