In the opening editorial of Al-Ahram’s Al-Siyassa Al-Dawliya magazine published on Sunday, Shoukry stated that Egyptian diplomacy has contributed to international and regional stability over the past decades in the pursuit of peace, security and prosperity for all countries of the world.

A special edition of the magazine was published to mark the centennial in March 2022 of Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The ministry reopened on March 15, 1922 after being forced to shutdown in 1914 following the declaration of the British protectorate in Egypt.

During the 100 years of its existence, the foreign ministry has witnessed periods of ups and downs, as well as war and peace, Shoukry said

Egyptian diplomacy has always acted as a bridge to the outside world, working in coordination with different state bodies and speaking on behalf of Egypt at the different world gatherings, Shoukry noted.

He also touched in his editorial upon the strenuous diplomatic efforts undertaken by the ministry in the wake of the Tripartite Aggression in 1956 and the October War in 1973, not to mention efforts to restore the precious land of Taba in 1989.

Minister Shoukry also lauded the role of Al-Ahram’s Al-Siyassa Al-Dawliya magazine describing it as “an inexhaustible tribute to the Egyptian political science school,” which is known for its competence.
