Egypt - EgyptAir MS804 crash – Reminder of the deputy spokesperson’s statement (December 17, 2016)


Egypt’s prosecutor-general has just announced his decision to return the remains of the victims of EgyptAir MS804.

This is an important decision – one that the families have been eagerly awaiting, and whose urgency was reiterated repeatedly by French authorities in recent months, including Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Jean-Marc Ayrault.

French officials hope this decision will be implemented as quickly as possible and remain at the Egyptian authorities’ disposal to that end.
