Egypt has welcomed the appointment of career diplomat Michel Kafando as Burkina Faso's interim president.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Badr Abdel-Ati said the changes in the west African state indicate a mature political atmosphere.
He also stressed the importance of dialogue between all parties.
Kafando, who will have to be confirmed by the Constitutional Council, previously served as the country's ambassador to the United Nations from 1998 to 2011. He was also foreign affairs minister between 1981 and 1982.
Mass unrest erupted in Burkina Faso in late October over president Blaise Compaore's bid to change the constitution, which would have allowed him to extend his 27-year rule of the former French colony. He was toppled on 31 October.
