In a statement released on Friday marking the 10th anniversary of the 30 June 2013 Revolution, El-Sisi said that day marks the reaffirmation of the unity of the homeland, under its Egyptian identity, which unites and does not disperse.
"30 June 2013 is one of the most prominent immortal days. It is the day when the great people of Egypt rose up, rebelling against those who wanted to take their homeland, rejecting injustice, sectarianism and tyranny, saying: the identity of the homeland is authentically Egyptian. We will not allow it to be kidnapped or exchanged," he added.
El-Sisi stated that the Egyptian people's resilience since the June 30 Revolution would be studied by intellectuals and researchers.
"There are many questions that have been raised about the secret behind the special relationship between the Egyptian people and their national state institutions and between the people and their Armed Forces," he noted.
"Many were confused about the source of this solid will and unyielding determination, which transformed Egypt, within a few years, from a country facing dangerous division and civil strife to a cohesive country, whose people enjoy security and stability," read the statement.
El-Sisi stated that the current generation of Egyptians is best equipped to build a modern and advanced state.
"I believe that this generation, which moved Egypt, with their efforts and patience, from chaos and anxiety to stability and security, is able to complete their comprehensive development experience which is witnessing rapid progress," he noted.
"On the 10th anniversary of the 30 June Revolution, I renew my pledge with you that devotion and work would only be for Egypt. I renew my pledge that the national interest and identity will always be the road markers that guide our journey and path," he added.
This victory signifies the progress towards development and improving the lives of all Egyptians, allowing them to unleash their creativity and work towards a brighter future.
Efforts aim to integrate all components of the homeland, including the private sector, civil society, youth, and women, towards the dream of progress and advancement in building a modern and advanced new republic.
