The Vatican presented Egypt’s Ambassador to the Holy See Mahmoud Sami with the Order of Knighthood in recognition of his efforts since heading the diplomatic mission at the Vatican in 2017, the Egyptian foreign ministry said.

The Vatican recognised Sami for his services in boosting relations between the Vatican and Egypt and supporting interfaith dialogue.

“The accolade is an expression of appreciation from the Vatican for the friendly and stable relations with Egypt and the exchange of visits between high officials from both states, including those of Al-Azhar Sheikh and religious institutions,” the ministry said.
