Mohamed al-Orabi
Former Foreign Minister
Published in Youm7 on 16 - 07 - 2011

Arabic: محمد عرابي
Born: 1951
Mohamed al-Orabi served as Foreign Minister of Egypt from June 18 through July 18, 2011. He was succeeded by Mohamed Kamel Amr.
Orabi was appointed by Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf . He was sworn in by chairman of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Hussein Tantawi. Al-Orabi succeeded Nabil al-Arabi as Foreign Minister.
Al-Orabi was a diplomat for 35 years and held posts in Israel and Germany. He was never in the spotlight of Egyptian media and he worked silently.
The post of Foreign Minister was going to be appointed to Fayza Aboul-Naga, the current Minister of Planning and International Cooperation.
Al-Orabi has always been a relatively quiet and patient man, which some Egyptians perceive as meaning he is not being firm enough.
