Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi participated in a marathon on Tuesday alongside 3,000 of Egypt’s youth in Sharm El Sheikh, where the first annual National Youth Conference is currently underway.

The marathon, according to the president, serves as a “message of peace to the world from the land of peace and prophets.”

“This is a message that we are directing at the whole world, that in Egypt, Egyptians are seeking to achieve peace and security and stability,” Sisi said at the end of the marathon. “We say to the whole world that it’s very important to be careful of peace and to combat and reject the violence and terrorism that destroy and harm the entire world.”

Two years ago, Sisi was photographed while participating in a 20km cycling marathon alongside then-prime minister Ibrahim Mahlab and a number of members of the Egyptian cabinet. The president said at the time that the objective of the marathon was “not just to promote exercising and activities, but to symbolize unity; our unity as a nation.”
