Defense Minister Greets Sisi On Anniversary of July 23rd Revolution

Defense Minister Sedki Sobhy sent on Tuesday 2272014 a cable to President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi greeting him on the 62nd anniversary of the July 23rd Revolution.

The Revolution was a national and heroic achievement that ended colonization and dependency, Sobhy said in his cable.

It was meant to build a national army that is able to protect the country, he added.

On June 30, 2013, people took to the streets under the protection of the army to get rid of those who had acted to jeopardize Egypt’s safety and security, Sobhy said.

Chief of Staff Mahmoud Hegazi sent a similar cable to Sisi.
