Egypt's presidency announced the appointment of Bassam Rady as its new spokesperson on Monday, ending the three-year tenure of Alaa Youssef.

Youssef confirmed in a short statement that Rady, Egypt's former consul in Turkey, would be replacing him.

The former spokesperson also added that he had been chosen to head Egypt's Permanent Mission to the UN in Geneva.

Youssef expressed his appreciation for having served as spokesperson under President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi's administration and for the cooperation of Egypt's media and press with his office over the past three years.

Bassam Rady is the third spokesperson to serve as the Egyptian Presidency spokesperson during President Sisi's term after Ehab Badawy and Alaa Youssef.
