You’re Excellencies, Ambassadors and representatives of diplomatic missions
All our honored guests from the SANDF and the DoD…
Dear Colleagues of the members of the Association of Military Attachés (MAAC) and the Egyptian Embassy in Pretoria
Ladies and gentlemen,
Our distinguished guests,

Thank you all for accepting the invitation to join us today in celebrating together, the (42nd) anniversary of the Egyptian armed forces day. This glorious day, stands as a reminder of the victory of the Egyptian armed forces in the sixth of October war in 1973, where we were able to reclaim our land, dignity and identity.

This victory was achieved only through faith in God, homeland support, and clearly relying on our brave Egyptian soldiers, that always apply scientific methods in training and in the management of war.

Great people and respected nations

Not only are we celebrating this victory today, but also the great gift that Egypt has given the world in the opening of the New Suez Canal.

The opening of the New Suez Canal on August 6th this year to maritime traffic has an impact that goes beyond political and economic goals. This massive project, completed in just one year and accomplished in such an accelerated timetable, is truly a gift from Egypt to the entire world.  The number of ships now able to transit the canal is almost doubled, from 49 to 79 per day and it can handle super-large cargo ships.  The new Suez Canal vastly shortens shipping distances and times to Europe and promises to be a logistical treasure. This amazing achievement could not have happened without the vision of the Egyptian leadership and more importantly, the Egyptians supporting that vision.

Finally I would like to confirm, the eagerness of the Egyptian armed forces to support military cooperation, and to enhance the relationship between Egypt and South Africa.
Moreover, we remain keen to work with our friendly and brotherly allies to reach the desired peace and prosperity for all the nations in the world.

Thank you again for honoring us today.

Egyptian Defence Office, Pretoria
