The foreign ministry has named a new spokesperson to replace Badr Abdel-Atti, who was appointed Egypt's ambassador to Germany last month.

The new spokesperson, Ahmed Abu Zeid, used to serve in Egypt's embassy in Washington and the consulate in San Francisco, besides being a member of Egypt's permanent delegation to the United Nations, which is based in New York.

Abu Zeid, who will take over his new post by mid August, was responsible for the foreign ministry bureau dealing with Africa and the Nile Basin countries.

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry served as Egypt's ambassador to the United States before being appointed a minster in June 2014.
