The Egyptian Embassy in Washington launched the 2016 public diplomacy campaign to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the inception of parliamentary life in Egypt.
The launching coincides with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry’s participation in the fourth Nuclear Security Summit, due to open in Washington on Thursday.
The Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said that the campaign aimed at spreading awareness of the parliamentary life in Egypt that began as early as 1866 and its significance on Egypt’s public and political life.
The commemorative campaign was initially unveiled during the foreign minister Shoukry’s visit to the US in February. It will be a year-long celebratory theme for the Egyptian embassy in Washington.
