In his word during the celebration held to mark the 69th anniversary of Police day, Sisi said that all Egyptians are celebrating today the police national day, which embodied police officers' sacrifices for the sake of their homeland.


"Every year this national pride will remain the motivation," Sisi said, adding that Egyptians will always stand together against any brutal enemy.

Moreover, President Sisi directed a message to Egyptian youth, saying, "Your country needs your sincere efforts to complete the path of reform, construction, and development, and to fulfill the hopes of all Egyptians towards a bright future."


In addition, President Sisi expressed his gratitude and appreciation towards police officers' sincere efforts to maintain the country's stability and security.

Sisi honored a number of police martyrs’ families, during a celebration held to mark the 69th anniversary of Police Day.

The President also bestowed the Order of Excellence, first and third classes, on idol police officers.

Upon his arrival, he laid a wreath of flowers at police martyrs’ memorial.

The ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli, Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfik, Parliament Speaker Hanafy El-Jebali, Al-Azhar Grand Imam Dr. Ahmed El-Tayyeb, Pope Tawadros II,  as well as a galaxy of top state officials.
