Between 2008 and 2012, he worked at the Egyptian embassy of Brussels. From 2012 to 2013, he was a Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for European Union and Western Europe.
The idea of building an Egyptian Embassy in Berlin dates back to the forties, when two pieces of land were purchased for the purpose of building both an embassy and a residence. The construction of the current embassy building was completed at the beginning of October 2001.
Germany and Egypt maintain friendly relations. Germany remains committed in its support of the development of a modern and democratic state in Egypt. The federal government is closely following the human rights situation in Egypt. The foreign ministers of both countries signed, on the 12th of August 2011, the Berlin Declaration on Germany's support for democratic change. There are also intensive economic relations between the two countries.
