Speeches

President El-Sisi’s Speech at Sudan’s Neighboring Countries Summit on July 13, 2023

Your Excellencies,

The Heads of State and Government of Sudan’s Neighboring counties

Your Excellency, Chairperson of the African Union Commission,

Your Excellency, Secretary General of the League of Arab States,

Ladies and gentlemen, honorable guests,

Allow me at the outset to welcome you all in Egypt and to thank you for accepting the invitation to attend this important summit. This summit is held at a defining historic moment in the history of Sudan, during which this neighboring country, which is dear to our hearts, is passing through a profound crisis that has its negative repercussions on the security and stability of the region, the world and, in particular, Sudan’s neighboring countries, which are the ones most affected by the crisis and most understanding and familiar with its complexities. This makes it necessary for our countries to unify our vision and positions with regard to the crisis, and take consistent and unified decisions to contribute to resolving it, in consultation with the proposals of effective regional institutions, primarily the African Union and the League of Arab States, so as to preserve the interests and resources of the peoples of neighboring countries and the security and stability of the entire region.

Ladies and gentlemen,

You are obviously aware of the gravity of the current crisis facing Sudan, and the repercussions of the fighting that has been ongoing for over three months, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of civilians and the displacement of millions of its people to safer areas inside the country or crossing into neighboring countries. This is, in addition to the formidable material damage to public and private properties and the destruction of numerous vital facilities in the country.

Adding to this are the impediments facing the agricultural season, which caused acute food shortages. The conflict and its negative repercussions also led to the deterioration of health institutions and shortages in medicines and healthcare supplies, which resulted in catastrophic repercussions on the humanitarian situation as a whole.

This sharp deterioration in the humanitarian situation and the catastrophic repercussions of the crisis necessitate immediate and sustainable cessation of the military operations, in order to preserve the resources of the Sudanese people and the state’s institutions, to enable them to assume their responsibilities toward the citizens. This shall pave the way for a prompt, coordinated and serious response by all parties in the international community, in a manner consistent with the severity of this perilous crisis, whose root-causes must be addressed by reaching a comprehensive political solution responsive to the hopes and aspirations of the Sudanese people.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I would not miss the opportunity to laud the tremendous efforts exerted by and noble stance of Sudan’s neighboring countries, which received hundreds of thousands of displaced people, and shared their limited resources with them, despite the severe global economic situation.

In this regard, I call on all parties in the international community to keep the pledges they declared at the Sudan Pledging Conference, which was held in support of Sudan in June 2023, by supporting Sudan’s neighboring countries that were hardest hit by the negative repercussions of the crisis, in order to strengthen their resilience and alleviate the suffering from those fleeing the conflict to neighboring countries.

Honorable attendees,

Immediately after the outbreak of the crisis in Sudan, Egypt took the initiative to receive hundreds of thousands of our Sudanese brothers, who joined around 5 million Sudanese people already living on Egyptian soil for several years.

The Government of Egypt also provided emergency relief that included food, sustenance, and medical supplies to the Sudanese brothers, who were affected by the conflict inside Sudanese territories.   

I would like to reiterate here that Egypt will exert its utmost efforts, in collaboration with all parties, to stop the spilling of the precious Sudanese blood, preserve the gains of the great people of Sudan, and help realize its people’s aspirations, which were voiced by millions of its sons during their glorious revolution, to live in security, freedom, peace and justice in their homeland.

Egypt will also seek to facilitate the access of humanitarian assistance provided by donors to Sudan through Egyptian land, in coordination with the relevant international agencies and organizations.

Honorable attendees,

Allow me to seize this opportunity to outline to you Egypt’s vision on how Sudan can emerge from the current crisis.

This vision is based on the following elements:

First:

Calling on the warring parties to stop the escalation and start, without delay, serious negotiations, aimed at reaching an immediate and lasting ceasefire.

Second:

Calling on all Sudanese parties to facilitate the access of humanitarian assistance and establish safe passages to deliver this aid to the neediest areas inside Sudan and develop mechanisms to ensure providing the necessary protection to humanitarian aid convoys and international relief staff to enable them to do their job.

Third:

Launching an inclusive dialogue of the Sudanese parties, with the participation of political and civil forces and representatives of women and the youth, with the aim of starting a comprehensive political process, fulfilling the ambition and aspirations of the Sudanese people for security, prosperity, stability and democracy.

Fourth:

Developing a communication mechanism, emanating from this conference, to create an executive action plan to reach a comprehensive solution to the Sudanese crisis. This mechanism shall be tasked with engaging directly with the parties to the conflict and coordinating with existing mechanisms and frameworks.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Allow me, before concluding my speech, to address the brotherly and dear people of Sudan:”The scenes of devastation, destruction and killing we are seeing are bleeding the hearts of all Egyptians, we feel the suffering and pain of our brothers in Sudan. We pray Allah Almighty to lift this ordeal as soon as possible.”

Based on that, we underscore the need for all brothers in Sudan to uphold the supreme interest and work toward maintaining the sovereignty and unity of Sudan, away from foreign interference that seek to achieve narrow interests which do not serve Sudan’s stability or peace, nor the region. I reaffirm that Egypt will spare no effort to help restore security, stability and peace across this brotherly country, in collaboration with all neighboring and friendly parties.

Once again, I would like to extend gratitude to the participating leaders for accepting the invitation to attend this summit, which we hope will succeed in its noble mission to help its dear neighbor and support the brotherly people overcome the current ordeal as soon as possible

 

Thank you

President El-Sisi’s Speech at “NEPAD Transforming Africa” Session on July 16, 2023

"In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful"

 

My Brother, His Excellency President Azali Assoumani,

President of the Union of Comoros and Chairperson of the African Union

My Brother, His Excellency President William Ruto,

President of the Republic of Kenya,

My Brother, His Excellency Mr. Moussa Faki,

Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union

Your Excellences .. the Heads of State and Government

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me pleasure to be among you today in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, to participate in the 5th Mid-Year Coordination Meeting of the African Union, the first edition of which was held under Egypt’s Chairmanship of the African Union in Niger in 2019, stemming from Egypt’s belief in the centrality of the trajectory of regional integration to further advance development rates in our African countries and reinforce means of their stability.

Allow me at the beginning of my address to express my sincere appreciation to my brother President William Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya, for the hospitality and warm reception we have received, and extend gratitude to the work team of the African Union Commission, under the leadership of His Excellency Mr. Moussa Faki, Chairperson of the African Union Commission for the well-prepared and well-organized activities of our meeting today.

Honorable attendees,

I was honored, upon your confidence, to assume the chairmanship of the Steering Committee of the Heads of State and Government of the African Union Development Agency-NEPAD (AUDA-NEPAD) for the period 2023-2024. Egypt assumes the chairmanship of this vital entity amid very critical conditions, coinciding with tangible changes at the regional and international levels and on the political and economic fronts, necessitating our concerted efforts to counter the challenges facing our peoples and affecting our ability to continue on the path of development for our African countries.

Therefore, Egypt has set specific targets for its NEPAD chairmanship, based on boosting the rates of economic integration and on proposing solutions to address the existing challenges. Work will focus on implementing these priorities through the coordination with the NEPAD Secretariat, under Chief Executive Officer of AUDA-NEPAD, Ms Nardos Bekele-Thomas, and through ongoing consultations with the African countries. Efforts to achieve these goals also aim to expedite the implementation of Agenda 2063 for Africa’s Development and to benefit from Egyptian expertise and capabilities, including private sector companies operating in the fields of infrastructure, energy and communications, and which are fully prepared to provide the necessary support to the brotherly African countries in their path of development.

Allow me to outline Egypt's main priorities during its NEPAD chairmanship over the next two years:

First: The timely completion of the second 10-year plan to implement Africa's Development Agenda 2024-2034, taking into account the lessons learned from the implementation of the first 10-year plan and the challenges we have encountered. This plan shall be developed in full coordination with regional economic groupings and be an inclusive document that could be relied upon in assessing the continent's achievement of the objectives of the 10-year development agenda until 2034.

Second: Continuing efforts to mobilize financial resources in priority areas, primarily the development of the infrastructure under Program for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), as well as other important projects such as the Mediterranean-Lake Victoria Navigational Line and the Cairo-Cape Town road.

This is in addition to continuing endeavors to strengthen the role of the industrial sector in our African countries and our engagement in global value chains, by stimulating the diversity of African industries. Here, I call for the adoption of the NEPAD Secretariat's proposal to launch the initiative “Africa Team for Resource Mobilization” to identify funding needs for the African continent.

Third: Intensify efforts with international partners and funding organizations to find effective solutions to address the accumulated debt crisis, by developing debt-relief mechanisms, through debt forgiveness, debts swap or concessional repayment, as well as proposals on the governance of the global financial system that is more sensitive to the needs of developing countries.

Fourth: Accelerating the achievement of the objectives of the Continental Free Trade Agreement. In this regard, I would like to laud the Agency's efforts in launching the “100 thousand SME’s” Initiative to support their ability to integrate into cross-border trade as well as the Agency's efforts in launching “Africa Revitalization” Initiative to build the capacity of African youth in the areas of corporate creation and management and entrepreneurship.

Fifth: Continuing the mobilization of the necessary resources for the program the Triple Peace-Security-Development Nexus, which shares its priorities and objectives with the post-conflict reconstruction and development dossier, which I was honored to spearhead at the African continent’s level. I call on the NEPAD Secretariat to coordinate, in this context, with the Political Affairs, Peace, and Security (PAPS) Department of the African Union Commission and The African Union Centre for Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development (AUC-PCRD), hosted in Cairo.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I outlined to you Egypt's vision for its chairmanship of our development agency- NEPAD over the next two years. Those are the priorities we will strive to implement and translate into "doable initiatives", in coordination with my brothers, their excellences the Heads of State and Government, members of the Steering Committee, and the Agency’s Secretariat. Here, I would like to reaffirm Egypt's readiness to work diligently and sincerely to deepen economic integration among the countries of the region and to advance development rates in our states, so as to contribute to promoting the living standard of our peoples.

 

 Thank you

President El-Sisi Speech at “Africa Blue Economy Strategy” Session on July 16, 2023

"In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful"

 

Your Excellences... Heads of State and Government,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Thank you for giving me the floor to speak for the second time, during our meeting today. Allow me at the beginning of my speech, in the context of this important item that addresses the connection between climate change, opportunities and challenges imposed on the axis of regional integration, to express my sincere appreciation for your participation in the Climate Action Summit, during the activities of COP27 that took place in November 2022 in Sharm El-Sheikh and reflected the commitment of our African countries towards multilateral action to combat climate change.

I would like to commend the effort of my brother, His Excellency President William Ruto, for leading the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change (CAHOSCC), wishing him success, as his country hosts the Climate Action Summit in September.

I would also like to congratulate my brother, His Excellency President of the Union of Comoros Azali Assoumani on the "Great Blue Wall" initiative, as a leading initiative to benefit from the riches of the blue economy, and adapt to climate change and thus contribute to the enhancement of development, especially in coastal areas.

Dear attendees,

Our summit comes at a time when the world is witnessing tireless efforts to deal with the current and expected effects of multiple crises, given their impact on the ability of developing countries, especially African countries, to achieve development for our societies and to maintain growth that was achieved. This is in addition to the status of uncertainty with regard to the international community, with its financing institutions, to provide the international environment to implement the green economy transformation.

This is, while bearing in mind the intertwined crises we are witnessing; the Ukrainian crisis, the energy crisis, the food and fertilizer crisis that coincide with a tangible increase in climate disasters.

Egypt hosted the World Climate Summit COP27 out of its keenness to participate effectively in formulating and facilitating the international effort to address climate change and to confirm the commitment of the African continent to advancing the climate action agenda by implementing the recommendations of science, in line with the principles of fairness and common but differentiated responsibilities and takes into account the national conditions of countries.

Our African continent is among the most affected as a result of climate change and its impact that varies between threats to coastal areas, increase in drought and desertification, and scarcity of water resources. This calls for looking for innovative ways to deal with it, given its centrality to the stability of societies and the achievement of sustainable development.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Despite the commitment to seriously address the climate challenge that was demonstrated at the Sharm EL-Sheikh summit, what is actually being implemented on the ground is less than what is required. Development partners, including international institutions, are still incapable of responding appropriately to the needs of our African countries to implement the process of economic transformation for redirecting sectors like energy, transport and agriculture and preserving biodiversity and the ecosystems, while at the same time achieving the sustainable development goals.

Within this framework, I would like to outline to you Egypt’s vision with regard to the aspects that should be the focus of our efforts in the coming period:

First: Providing an appropriate environment for the prompt implementation of effective projects and programs to reduce emissions in the various sectors and facilitate access to renewable energy.

Second: Developing trajectories and fair programs for transformation in the various sectors.

Third: Focusing on the principles of equity and justice, whereby the transformation takes into consideration the social and economic dimensions and avoids unilateral measures that might have direct effect on the flow of international trade, particularly the exports of developing and African countries.

Fourth: Realizing climate justice and reinvigorating funding arrangements, the Loss and Damage Fund and adaptation financing, while acknowledging the burden endured by African countries to support their societies in the face of the negative impact of climate change.

Fifth: Enhancing regional cooperation to ensure the development of capacities to preserve the shared ecosystems, ensure the integrated benefiting by the states and contain any negative transboundary effects.

Sixth: Providing a supportive international environment necessary for the implementation, particularly concessional and adequate financing, and enhancing access to it, while ensuring its consistency with national ownership and that this does not result in a reduction in the funding necessary for eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable development.

Seventh: Effectively addressing the debt challenge and the high cost of financing, including resorting to innovative solutions such as debt exchange mechanisms, and reviewing and writing-off additional fees and interests.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have presented to you Egypt's vision with regard to the areas on which we need to focus as part of our joint efforts to address climate challenges. I hope that work will continue to translate these recommendations into” doable initiatives”. Believing in this, Egypt has launched a number of initiatives for water, adaptation, agriculture, energy, hydrogen and biodiversity in cooperation with the international partners, including the” Decent Life Initiative for Africa” and “The Global Forum for Renewable Hydrogen” Initiative, which I invite you to join.

In conclusion, I am confident that the upcoming summit in the United Arab Emirates will be a tangible step on a fair and equitable path to protect the planet from the catastrophic consequences of climate change and look forward to cooperating with all of you so that African and developing countries will continue to steer the international agenda towards strengthening international cooperation in the face of the existential challenge posed by climate change.

Thank you

President El-Sisi’s Speech on the Anniversary of the July 23rd Revolution

"In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful"

The great people of Egypt,

I extend to you my sincere greetings on the 71st Anniversary of the glorious July 23rd, 1952 Revolution, which reminds us of the struggle of a generation of our people, who looked one day to the future and wanted it to be free and dignified for Egypt and its sons. It is a generation that sought to eradicate colonialism and foreign domination and made enormous sacrifices to achieve this end, until the immortal July Revolution culminated this extended march, during which Egyptian patriotism crystalized and grew stronger to stand firmly on its feet, demanding that colonialism “carry its stick on its shoulders and leave” as called for by Gamal Abdel Nasser, the leader of the revolution, to whom we extend salutation and appreciation today. We also pay tribute to President Mohamed Naguib, who bore the responsibility at a critical moment of the homeland’s history, and to the hero, President Mohamed Anwar Sadat, who fulfilled the duty in war and peace and paid his life as a precious price for Egypt’s dignity and future.

 

The generous people of Egypt,

The July Revolution established “The First Republic” 70 years ago and moved on its path, building a “New Egypt” at its time. Its status rose east and west, becoming a source of inspiration for national liberation across the globe. It took significant strides toward empowering large segments of our people, peasants and workers, and granting them a dignified status befitting them, which they have long awaited and longed for. The revolution has realized great achievements in many cases and its march stumbled at other times.

 

70 years after the establishment of the Republic and with the change in the nature of the times and its challenges, and after the homeland passed through formidable historical events over the years from 2012 to 2014 and a grave period of chaos and instability that compromised the very existence of the state and the resources of the Egyptian people, it was imperative to think seriously about the future and the “New Republic” that embodies the historical progress of our national march as a great nation, as it was about time for it to restore its worthy status among the nations.

 

The great people of Egypt,

The foundations and values of “The New Republic” are built on their predecessor and do not destroy it.. they add to it and do not detract from it. They are based on the priority of preserving and protecting the homeland, amid an international and regional reality that is becoming increasingly complicated and turbulent in an unprecedented manner .. They are also based on the unity of the domestic front, given the change in the nature of the threats, a great part of which is exclusively targeting its domestic front.

“The New Republic” is the result of an unprecedented phase in Egyptian history, of hardships and challenges during which the Egyptians realized and were certainly sure that nothing supersedes a secure and stable homeland.

Social and economic development and modernization have become a necessity for life and the future, not a luxury.

Our demographic and economic reality requires us not to talk only about development in the traditional sense, but rather embark on high and successive growth rates and accelerated sustainable development in order for exceptional achievements to become our norm. “The New Republic” seeks to provide equal opportunities for work and a decent life for this generation and future generations, and build national capacity in all fields for Egypt to reach the position to which its people aspire.

Achieving, preserving and developing the aforementioned require, in parallel with the process of construction, the development of human characteristics in our society; building the Egyptian citizen and improving his/her educational, health and cultural conditions.

This requires immense work and struggle within an integrated societal framework based on precise balance between rights and duties.

 

The great people of Egypt,

You can be proud of what we have achieved throughout our recent history since independence. Our national march is moving forward despite the difficulties and challenges. We look forward to more, as the aspirations of our people touch the edges of the sky.

We work with diligence, devotion and knowledge to turn these hopes into reality and facts everywhere in Egypt. We know that our great people have endured a lot and set an example in patience and steadfastness in the face of many crises. We assure you that the state is tirelessly exerting every effort to provide new and distinguished job opportunities, increase the income of citizens, and establish new paths for the development and growth of the economy in keeping pace with the age as well as the aspirations of the people. We assure you that all serious voices are heard to achieve the interest of the country and contribute to building the future and the new reality that we aspire to and work for, with sincere intentions for God and the nation.

 

Thank you very much, and may Egypt always be in safety, peace and progress.

And always and forever: long live Egypt, long live Egypt, long live Egypt.

May the peace and blessings of God be upon you.

President El-Sisi’s Speech at the 2nd Africa-Russia Summit on July 28, 2023

“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful”

Your Excellency President Vladimir Putin,

President of the Russian Federation

Your Excellency President Azali Assoumani,

President of the Union of Comoros and Chairperson of the African Union

Your Excellences, Heads of State and Government of our African continent

At the outset, I would like to express our deepest appreciation to His Excellency President Putin for the warm welcome and hospitality.

I am pleased to be present today at the second session of the Africa-Russia Summit which I had the honor to jointly launch, together with President Putin, in its first edition in 2019, during Egypt's chairmanship of the African Union.

This path formulated a sustainable institutional framework, befitting the size and depth of the historical partnership which brings together African countries and Russia.

Today, our summit comes during a very complex international circumstance, and a general climate characterized by a high degree of polarization and changes that are affecting the main bases, on which our World Order was built in its modern concept. Our African countries stand in the midst of that to face a huge number of challenges, which not only affect their ability to complete their development path, but also threaten the determinants of their security and the rights of future generations.

And so, our peoples are legitimately questioning what tools we have and what measures we are taking to address these challenges and secure a safe future for them.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Egypt has always been a pioneer and at the forefront in pursuing the path of peace, the peace of the strong which is based on truth, justice and balance.

It was its strategic choice and it carried the banner to spread this culture, believing in the power of logic, not the logic of power and that the world accommodates everyone.

Allow me from this podium, and on the occasion of our summit today, to present to you Egypt's vision regarding the current international situation as well as the most important axes, which we know how important they are to focus on, as a basis for deepening the existing cooperation under the umbrella of our strategic partnership.

First:

African countries are sovereign, independent and active in their international community. They aspire to peace and security and seek sustainable development that realize the interests of their peoples, first and foremost. They shall stay out of endeavors of polarization in existing conflicts.

Second:

Developing durable solutions for ongoing conflicts in our world today shall be based on the objectives and purposes of the UN Charter and the principles of international law. Those include the peaceful settlement of conflicts; maintaining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states; addressing the root causes of the crises, particularly those pertinent to the determinants of the states’ national security; and abstaining from using various tools to stoke conflicts and deepen the state of polarization, including employing economic sanctions outside the mechanisms of the multilateral World Order.

Third:

The importance of taking into consideration the needs of developing countries, primarily countries in the African continent, with regard to the severe repercussions on their economies as a result of the ongoing conflicts and challenges, specifically in the areas of food security, supply chains and high energy prices. In this regard, I underscore the importance of finding prompt solutions to provide food and grain at prices that would help Africa overcome this crisis, while exploring innovative financing mechanisms to support agricultural and food systems in Africa. I look forward to reaching a consensual solution with regard to the Grain Deal, that would take into consideration the demands and interests of all parties and curb rising grain prices.

Fourth:

The successive international developments and their repercussions which affect all corners of our world inevitably require an effective and vigorous African voice inside existing international fora to convey the stances of African states and realize the amount of balance required when discussing issues directly affecting their interests. Here, I express Egypt’s hope for African demands and efforts toward reform of international financial institutions to receive the support of the Russian partner and friend within the G20

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The documents that will emerge from today's summit rightly demonstrate the depth of the strategic relations and significant bonds that bring together our African States and Russia. They will also highlight the broad prospects for strengthening existing relations between us, particularly in areas of common interest. Those include primarily the promotion of peace and security and combating the threats they face and invigorating the pathways of economic development with a focus on infrastructure sectors, agricultural industrialization and industrial transformation, harnessing Russian technology. This is, in addition to strengthening cultural connections and historical bonds between our peoples.

In this regard, I reiterate Egypt's commitment to continuing its serious and sincere engagement in efforts to deepen our strategic partnership, stemming from a belief in the opportunities and areas of cooperation that exist within its framework. This would take place by harnessing Egypt's tools and capabilities, at the national level, by effectuating the existing cooperation between Egyptian companies and their Russian counterparts in areas of mutual interest. At the continental level, this would take place through Egypt's Chairmanship of the Steering Committee of the Heads of State and Government of the African Union Development Agency (NEPAD), and through spearheading the dossier of post-conflict reconstruction and development to support efforts to promote peace, security and development, at the level of the African Union.

In conclusion, I would like to once again extend gratitude to Russia and His Excellency President Putin for convening this forum, looking forward to continuing coordination within the framework of the pivotal partnership between us, and wishing the Russian people and all African peoples lasting progress and prosperity.

Thank you.
