“We are with you and we will sacrifice for Egypt. We are implementing the will of late UAE leader Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan and of his highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed to defend Egypt and sacrifice for it,” Ameri said to which Sisi replied: “We will sacrifice for you too.”
“We will not be late to Egypt’s defense. Our curricula teaches about defending Egypt. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed urges us during every meeting to always be ready to defend Egypt,” Ameri added.
Ameri also said that their souls are hearts are with Sisi and commended Sisi for his steadfastness.
“You held your ground. The Egyptian people and army held its ground with you as well because you are right and those who are right always win. However this requires patience which is (a gift) from God. We are with you in one trench…against every terrorist and traitor, and we will stay with you,” Ameri added.
