Minister of Defense and Military Production General Sedqi Sobhi said Egypt represents strategic depth of the Arab and regional security.
He said sharp changes in the region and direct and indirect threats require integration and cooperation among all sisterly countries with the aim of boosting pillars of the security and stability in the Middle East.
He hailed the depth of Egyptian-UAE strategic relations as a model of Arab solidarity and cooperation to serve the best interest of the two brotherly peoples. He stressed the importance of joint exercises between the two countries.
The minister said joint exercises with friendly and sisterly countries enable the armed forces of successfully undertaking their tasks and developing troop’s skills in the theater of operations.
Seeing off troops leaving for the UAE, Sobhi called on them to show discipline and cooperate with UAE troops with the aim of achieving maximum benefit.
Elements of the rapid intervention troops have demonstrated engagement skills, self-defense tactics, and distinguished skills in rapid intervention to deal with different hostilities under any circumstances.
