Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi hailed the bravery and vision of late president Anwar El-Sadat in creating peace in the region.

El-Sisi made the comments during a speech on Tuesday marking a century since the birth of the Nobel Peace laureate.

El-Sisi said that the 1973 October War with Israel restored dignity for the Egyptian and Arab people and paved the way for El-Sadat to make peace.

"The October War paved the way for president Anwar El-Sadat to carry out the most promising initiatives of the modern era," said El-Sisi.

In 1978, Egypt and Israel signed at the White House the Camp David peace accords.

El-Sisi stressed that El-Sadat's message was clear, that Egypt "does not accept injustice and humiliation. Egypt seeks a just peace and seeks development and prosperity for its people, its region and the world."

The president also pointed out that El-Sadat dedicated his life to the homeland.

El-Sadat was the third president of Egypt, serving from 15 October 1970 until his assassination by Islamists fundamentalists on 6 October 1981.

The 1973 war eventually led to Israeli forces withdrawing from the Sinai Peninsula in 1982 after 15 years of occupation.
