Amr Moussa, a #politician from #Egypt

Mr Amr Moussa is an Egyptian politician and diplomat. When you look at his infobox on the English Wikipedia, you will agree that he is quite a distinguished politician. The question is what does it take to enter data for Mr Moussa in Wikidata.

I had to add two new Wikidata items:
  • Ambassador to the United Nations
  • Secretary General of the Arab League
I added the text "of Egypt" to the item "Minister of Foreign Affairs".

The label of "Ambassador to the United Nations" on the info box links to "List of current Permanent Representatives to the United Nations". Mr Moussa became minister of Foreign Affairs after the end of representing Egypt at the UN.

I did not create items for his wife and daughter.
