Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said on Sunday that the government has drawn up an integrated plan for recycling water through upgraded triple treatment plants, so that we can use water more than once.

He added that the government also set up desalination plants in many areas such as El Alamein, Galala, Sokhna, Hurghada and Matrouh.

These remarks came during El Sisi’s participation in the 31st intellectual seminar of the Egyptian Armed Forces to celebrate the 46th anniversary of Egypt’s victory in the war against Israel on October 6th, 1973.

The Egyptian president added that he will meet with Ethiopian Prime Minister in Moscow to reach a final solution over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) crisis.

El-Sisi added that the October War represented a milestone in the history of military science, pointing out, “Our strength lies in our unity”.

He noted that there are a lot of morals to be learnt from October victory, which was achieved by will, patience and hard work, confirming that the only way to maintain security is to have a national army and modern weapons.

El-Sisi added, “Therefore, since assuming previous post of Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and now as a president, I have been keen to strengthen the capabilities of our armed forces due to Egypt’s unique geographical location in a turbulent environment.

He confirmed that there is no country in the Arab region able to maintain its security and stability without Egypt’s assistance.

“The Egyptian people did not lose their confidence in the Egyptian army even at their major defeat in Naksa, 1967,” Sisi said.

He stressed that if Egyptians lose confidence in themselves, they will lose confidence in the army and its capabilities, saying “What we have witnessed during the past two months of attempts was to harm, distort and humble the value of the army and its capabilities.”
