CAIRO: The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched Sunday a new blog to communicate the situation in Egypt and demonstrate the country’s foreign policy trends, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid announced Sunday.

“The launch of the new blog comes within the ministry’s integrated strategy to strengthen and diversify ways to communicate with the outside world, especially in light of the increasing and distorted media campaigns adopted by some western media on Egypt’s economic, security and political situation,” Abu Zeid was quoted by Youm7 Sunday.

The move is the first of its kind since the ministry was established in first half of the 19th century.

“This initiative aims to provide an informal platform for diplomats and officials, and equally scholars, academics and thinkers to contribute to debates on Egypt’s foreign policy and to share their comments, thoughts and analyses on Egypt’s role in the region and the world,” Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry in the blog’s welcome note.
