Egypt has announced that it is reinstating its ambassador to the Vatican, more than a month after she was recalled over a dispute relating to comments by Pope Benedict.

Ambassador Lamia Mekheimar will return to the Vatican on Wednesday in light of “positive messages” recently sent to Egypt by Vatican officials, Egypt’s foreign ministry said in a press statement, Monsters and Critics reports.

Mekheimar was recalled in January after a speech by the pope to foreign diplomats in which he called on governments in majority Muslim countries to increase efforts to protect their Christian populations.
