President Abdel Fatah Al Sisi of Egypt yesterday commended the support of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Bahrain for the Arab Republic of Egypt.

In a speech to Egyptian State TV, Al Sisi stressed that attempts to cause discord between Egypt and the Gulf states will go in vain. He pointed out that support Egypt received from the GCC Countries is crucial to help the country counter all challenges.

In the meantime, Al Sisi underlined the dire need for a “unified Arab force” to counter challenges facing Arab countries and the region.

Referring to recent strikes by the Egyptian army against Daesh terrorist organisation, he said they targeted 13 sites “that had been accurately revised.” On army and police operations in the Sinai which he deemed as “successful”, Al Sisi said they are seeking to restore full control of the Peninsula for later development.
