Former diplomat, Osama El-Baz, died of illness Saturday at the age of 82.

El-Baz, one of Egypt's most prominent diplomatic figures, played a key role in drafting the 1979 Camp David Accords between Egypt and Israel during the era of former president Anwar El-Sadat.

He later became the chief political aide to ousted president Hosni Mubarak.

El-Baz, who identified himself as a reformist, was sidelined during the latest years of the rule of Hosni Mubarak. El-Baz was even spotted during the 18 day Tahrir sit-in in January 2011 that caused the ousting of the Mubarak regime. He was however criticised by some Mubarak opponents for his close ties with the autocratic regime.

Goodbye Mr El-Baz, May God rest your soul
I wish to convey my sincere condolences to El-Baz family including Mr. Haney El-Baz who had done a marvellous job as a senior diplomat during his stay in Australia. In 1980. Mr Haney El-Baz was kind enough to honour us by attending my wedding reception at the Australian Opera House! His gesture was much appreciated by everyone! May Mr Osama El-Baz rest in peace and may God rewards him for all his good deeds
