CAIRO (Sputnik) — Preparation of a report on flight data recorders of Russian crashed A321 will take from one to four weeks, spokesman for the Egyptian government Hossam al-Kawish said Tuesday.

"Transcript work on the black boxes depends on the technical condition in which they were found. Civil Aviation Minister assured that the black boxes were found in good condition, thus the report should be prepared in short period of time, from one to four weeks," Kawish told CBC News.

On Saturday, a Russian aircraft, carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members crashed in the Sinai Peninsula en route from the Egyptian resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. All people on board, including 25 children, were confirmed dead by Russian and Egyptian authorities.
