Egypt celebrates the International Day of the Diplomat to mark the resumption of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ activity following Egypt’s independence from UK on 22 February 1922.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had been abolished for seven years on Britain’s announcement that it was making Egypt its protectorate in 1914.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Ahmed Hafez said the celebration comes at a time when Egyptian diplomacy is active in protecting the country’s interests. It also comes at a time when Egypt faces regional economic, security and domestic challenges.
