Egypt not to extend years-long state of emergency: president


(MENAFN- Trend News Agency ) Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said on Monday that he canceled the extension of the years-long state of emergency throughout the country, Trend reports citing Xinhua .

"I am glad that we share together the moment that we have long sought with struggle and hard work. Egypt has become, thanks to its great people and loyal men, an oasis of security and stability in the region," Sisi posted on his official Facebook page.

He added that the Egyptians are "the real makers" of this decision through their sincere participation in all development and construction efforts.
