Egypt appoints permanent NATO envoy.
Egyptian ambassador to Belgium had been appointed Egyptian ambassador to the NATO (which also seat in Brussel). This new permanent mission toward the NATO will avoid Egypt to maintain a permanent link with the NATO, and influence its decision if necessary. The NATO secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, told that : “Egypt being so close, a key nation, we, I, expressed from the NATO side that we are ready to help build structures, defence institutions in Libya”. So in front of the Middle-East situation, this New permanent mission could have a great impact on future decisions about the Middle-East.
