Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi conducted a visit of the Egyptian Military Academy in Cairo, early on Thursday, with the attendance of several high-level military personnel, according to a presidency statement.
During his visit, President Al-Sisi inspected the morning exercises performed by the college students, along with their physical and martial arts skills exercises.
Following the morning’s events, the President joined the newly admitted students and their families. During his meeting with them, in which he praised their training efforts, President Al-Sisi discussed the country’s various security efforts with the students, whilst also asserting that the Egyptian state has regained its prestige.
Since taking office in 2014, the President has undertaken a number of visits to military and police colleges to inspect the students’ conditions and praise their efforts.
Earlier this month, President Al-Sisi undertook a sudden visit to Cairo’s Police College, to inspect the cadet’s physical preparation and training.
Posting on Twitter on Thursday, to commemorate the International Day of Human Fraternity, the President said, “The world today celebrates an important human value that we may need more than ever, which is the value of human brotherhood.”
“This important occasion reminds us all of the importance of dialogue to understand and accept the other,” he added, “It also reminds us of the importance of strengthening cooperation to reject intolerance and confront hate speech, and spread the values of tolerance, justice and equality in order to achieve peace and stability.”
The President noted that, in this context, religious institutions and leaders in Egypt are doing their utmost to enhance dialogue between followers of the different divine religions, and raise awareness of common human values.
