The Bahraini Foreign Minister, Abdul Latif bin Rashid Al Zayani, said that he expressed to Tunisian President Qais Saeed the Kingdom of Bahrain’s support for him during the recent events in Tunisia.
Al-Zayani added, during his meeting with Tunisian President Qais Saeed, that the Kingdom of Bahrain respects Tunisian internal affairs, indicating that no party has the right to interfere in that.
The Bahraini foreign minister continued, “We are working to support Tunisia to overcome the economic, political and social crises,” stressing that the Kingdom of Bahrain is in full solidarity with Tunisia.
Support continues to Tunisia
International support for Tunisia, especially Al-Arabi, has continued since the recent decisions taken by President Kais Saied, related to freezing parliament, lifting the immunity of parliamentarians, relieving Prime Minister Hicham Al-Mashishi, and assuming executive power with the help of a new prime minister.
The last chapter of this support was through French President Emmanuel Macron’s call with Tunisian President Kais Saied, yesterday, Saturday, where the French President assured his Tunisian counterpart, “France stands by Tunisia and the Tunisian people at this crucial moment, for the sake of its sovereignty and freedom.”
The President of the French Republic expressed his desire that “Tunisia will be able to respond quickly to the economic, social and health challenges it is facing,” stressing that “Tunisia can count on France’s support to face all these challenges.”
For his part, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, sent a written message to Tunisian President Kais Saied, regarding bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to enhance them, as well as issues of common concern.
