Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi stated on Sunday that the majority of Arab countries have in recent years suffered from dangerous challenges that have had economic, social and political repercussions.

The greatest challenge facing Egypt is the threat of terrorism, he declared.

He made his remarks during a ceremony marking Labor Day.

“The Egyptian army and police have and are still waging a fierce war against various extremist cells, most notably in Sinai,” added the president.

“We have suffered together from harrows of deceit and pain of the loss of loved ones,” continued Sisi.

He stressed that along with the fight against terrorism, Egypt will continue its efforts to “reform its house from the inside.”

He also underlined the need to confront the crises plaguing the economy.

On the occasion of Labor Day, Sisi said: “The Egyptian worker is a real national treasure and the basis for heading towards a better future.”

They play a major part in the pursuit of development, stated the president.
