Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi stressed on Tuesday that his country’s war on terrorism has achieved significant victories
Speaking at the Cultural Symposium of the Armed Forces marking the 49th anniversary of the 6th of October War victory in 1973, he vowed that the construction process in Egypt will continue until the establishment of the “New Republic.”
“This republic aims to achieve the aspirations of this and future generations and lay out the path of progress,” he declared.
Sisi said the development projects would achieve security and hopes for the new generations and will also improve the living conditions of the people.
He said the state had been carrying on with development projects even as it waged a war on terrorism.
He noted that the army and civilian police had fought the “forces of evil” in Sinai for eight consecutive years since 2011, claiming major victories.
The state’s current efforts will continue to have an impact for years to come, Sisi added.
He hailed the heroics displayed during the October War that demonstrated the abilities of the Egyptian people and superiority “during the most difficult moments witnessed by the Arab nation”.
Egypt not only defended its territories, but it also fought for peace, he stated.
He saluted late President Anwar al-Sadat the “hero of war and peace” and everyone who had a hand in Egypt's glories in its modern history.
