Former secretary-general of the Arab League Esmat Abdel-Meguid died on Saturday.

The Egyptian career diplomat, who was 90 years old, held the high-profile post from 1991 to 2001 under former president Hosni Mubarak. He was succeeded in the post by Amr Moussa.

Abdel-Meguid held other roles in the 1980s and early 1990s, including foreign minister and deputy prime minister.

From 1972 to 1983 he was the Egyptian representative at the UN, and he was ambassador to France in the 1970s.
