KUWAIT - 7 October 2018: Kuwaiti newspapers out on Sunday shed light on Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi's nationwide address on the 45th anniversary of October War victory.

Headlined "Sinai Army Martyrs gave peace and hope to millions of Egyptians", Al Anba newspaper quoted Sisi as saying that October War victory is a renewed message of hope and self-confidence.

The president added that the war proved that the Egyptian army had capabilities that exceeded all expectations.

He stressed that the war was not just for restoring lands but for making peace too.

He paid tribute to late presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anwar el Sadat as well as all Egyptian martyrs who sacrificed their lives for homeland.

Al Seyassah newspaper also quoted the Egyptian president as saying that Egypt is still facing challenges including that of preserving the Egyptian State and preventing its downfall.

Egypt is doing so through standing up to the danger of political vacuum and terrorism, the president indicated.

Great Egypt is accustomed to achieving victories and conquering any ordeal, said the president, explaining that as Egypt was capable to cross the bridge between defeat and victory in the period from 1967-1973, it could also overcome the period of unprecedented turmoil that swept the region over the past few years.

These challenges did not sap the will of Egypt as it managed to besiege black terrorism and deal heavy blows to its elements and organizations, said the president.
