President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi stated on Wednesday that the 30 June Revolution was not just a passing moment in which Egyptians expressed anger, but rather conveyed their most established and noble constants.
El-Sisi’s statement came in a written post on his official Facebook page on the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the 30 June popular uprising.
“The 30 June Revolution was not just a passing moment in which the Egyptians expressed anger, indignation or resentment, but rather was the finest shouts of expression of the strongest, most established and most noble Egyptian constants, which are belonging to the homeland and loyalty to its land,” El-Sisi wrote.
“As we celebrate the eighth anniversary of our glorious revolution,” El-Sisi said, “I send a precious message to all those who sacrificed their lives by rejecting extremism and terrorism, and I say to them: We will not forget you.”
The president also paid tribute to the great people of Egypt “who proved to the whole world that they are the most patient, most sincere, and resolute in their state and national institutions.”
Proving to the whole world the correctness of their choices, heading towards declaring the new republic with their endurance, patience, and ability to do the impossible and defeat the challenge, the president said.
“God save Egypt and its people until Judgment Day,” El-Sisi concluded.
