BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – Egyptian Minister of Defense Mohamed Zaki called on the army forces to maintain the highest levels of combat readiness in order to face all the challenges and crises in the region and to protect the pillars of Egyptian national security.

The Egyptian Minister of Defense said during the graduation of new cadets at the Nasser Military Academy:

“The Egyptian armed forces will always remain a support for the Arab and Islamic causes of its nation,” pointing to the need to “maintain the highest levels of combat efficiency in facing all the challenges and crises in the region and to protect the pillars of Egyptian national security.”

The Egyptian Minister of Defense pointed out: “The Egyptian armed forces are keen to keep pace with the developments in the systems of preparing and qualifying leaders and officers and laying the foundations and scientific programs that maximize their material and human capabilities based on minds armed with science and knowledge, hard work and permanent willingness to protect the security of the homeland and preserve its sanctities.”

He noted that the Egyptian armed forces: “Today, modern forces occupy a prominent place among the armies of the world, with their security forces, trained capabilities and advanced armament, which enable them to fulfill their historical responsibilities and tasks to preserve the security of the country and preserve its capabilities.”

Zaki’s comments come nearly a week after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called on the Egyptian armed forces to prepare for operations inside and outside the country.
