Today, Friday, a high-ranking US delegation will visit Tunisia, during which it is expected to meet with President Kais Saied, according to the media office of the Foreign Ministry, while the Tunisian president stressed that his administration will continue the battle and make a new bright history.
The same source told Al-Arabiya and Al-Hadath that the delegation consists of Acting US Deputy Secretary of State Joey Hood, Deputy National Security Adviser at the White House Jonathan Viner, as well as Director of the North Africa Office of the National Security Council at the White House Josh Harris.
Meanwhile, Tunisian President Kais Saied said today, Friday, that his country will continue the “battle”, and will make what he described as a new bright history.
He added in a speech broadcast by the Tunisian presidency, “We will continue the battle and we will make a new bright history in which each party will receive its full rights under a state based on law.”
The Tunisian president added that the law “will not be absent in Tunisia.” He also said, “We will work steadfastly to fulfill the aspirations of the Tunisian people in all fields.”
Saeed also stressed the importance of working to “realize economic and social rights.”
The Tunisian presidency stated on Facebook that Said supervised the signing of an agreement with the Russian Space Agency “to select, train and send a Tunisian astronaut to the International Space Station.”
It is noteworthy that President Qais Saeed decided on July 25 to freeze all parliament’s competencies for a month, strip its members of immunity and dismiss the government led by Hisham al-Mashishi, in return for his assumption of the presidency of the executive authority and the Public Prosecution, based on Article 80 of the constitution.
