The new report's findings conflict with a December 2016 report from BEA's Egyptian counterpart that discovered traces of explosive on human remains, suggesting a malicious act.
"The BEA's proposals concerning further work on the debris and recorded data were not, as far as the BEA knows, followed up. The technical elements of the investigation already collected by Egypt, including those provided by the BEA, are protected by the Egyptian judicial investigation", the French statement said.
Twelve of those killed in the May 2016 crash were French nationals.
