Establishing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs dates back to the first half of the Nineteenth Century with the beginnings of Mohamed Ali's rule and his attempts to build the modern state by benefiting from Napoleon's Administrative Division which Mohamed Ali adopted as a base for his state.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is entrusted with conducting the country's foreign relations within the framework of the Egyptian Cabinet. It is also concerned with planning and implementing the country's foreign policy, and coordinating with the other ministries and institutions concerned. The Ministry also plays an essential role in collecting and evaluating political, economic, cultural, and scientific information that may affect foreign relations
