Sisi affirmed that Egypt is willing to continue the reform program the government started earlier. The president also pointed out that Egypt has already made a lot of clear achievements, and will continue on the same path to secure a good and stable life for all Egyptians.

Furthermore, President Sisi said that this graduation ceremony comes in conjunction with the anniversary of the July Revolution, "which represents the beginning of a new phase in the Egyptian history." Sisi sent his greetings to late presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser, Anwar Sadat and Mohamed Naguib for their key roles in the revolution.

Sisi arrived Monday morning at the Egyptian Military Academy to attend the graduation ceremony of the new batches of the Military Academy and the Technical Institute for Military Forces. Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli, Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfiq along with a number of the state’s senior officials attended the graduation ceremony.

Upon the arrival of President Sisi, the national anthem was played and the ceremony kicked off. More than 1,300 students of the military academies presented a show, which included a series of fighting techniques as well as Karate and Kung Fu exercises, to display their physical fitness and high-standard combat skills.

Moreover, a group of cadets engaged in free fighting exercises with the use of cold weapons to reflect their self-defense skills, while another group of cadets showed their skills in climbing and storming buildings to fight enemies.

On July 20, President Sisi attended the graduation ceremony of a new batch of police cadets at the Police Academy headquarters in Cairo's suburb of New Cairo.
