CAIRO: United States Ambassador to Egypt R. Stephen Beecroft met Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry Thursday morning to official submit his credentials.

Beecroft was appointed by the U.S. Senate last July, and has previously served as a diplomat in U.S. embassies in Baghdad, Amman, Riyadh, and Damascus. Before his post in Cairo he was the Ambassador to Iraq.

Beecroft succeeds Ambassador Anne Patterson, who left her post in 2013 to serve as an assistant secretary of state.
