Dr. Mostafa el Feki, Director of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, received on Sunday the new Vatican Ambassador to Egypt Archbishop Nicolas Henry and a number of several archbishops and leaders of the Catholic Church in Egypt.
The ambassador went on a tour inside the Alexandria Library, saying that he had been impressed by the books, precious manuscripts, museums, and wonderful art exhibitions.
During the meeting, the ambassador hailed the historical relations that bring Egypt together with Vatican, pointing out to the important recent visit paid by Pope Francis to Egypt.
He also confirmed that Egypt is always keen to be a centre of moderation, bringing various believers together in close coexistence.
Henry has previously served in India, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Belgium, Cuba, Bulgaria, Guatemala, among other countries.
He served in the Section for Relations with States at the Vatican before joining the private secretariat of Cardinal-Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone in 2006.
In 2010, he was elevated to the rank of Apostolic Prothonotary and joined the Prefecture of the Pontifical House.
In January 2013, he was one of the last bishops ordained by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who appointed him Apostolic Nuncio in Guatemala in 2013.
