Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohamed Amr in his name and on behalf of all members of the Foreign Ministry, offers the deepest condolences to all Egyptians, Christians and Muslims, on the passing of Pope Shenouda III, Pope of Alexandria and the Patriarch of All Africa on the Holy Apostolic See of Saint Mark the Evangelist. Egypt has lost one of its best men, who attempted throughout his life to preserve the national unity of Egypt and defend the causes of his country and his Arab nation. Pope Shenouda III will always last as an ideal for sincere patriotic men.
