Presidents of Tunisia and Niger Discuss Libya


On Saturday, Tunisian President Kais Saied, along with his Nigerien counterpart, Mohamadou Issoufou, confirmed during a phone call that the Libyan people are able to find solutions that express their will without any external interference.

According to a statement of the Tunisian presidency, the two presidents discussed the situation in Libya and ways to resolve the crisis through a domestic political solution, one averting any potential external interference.

According to the statement, the two sides discussed ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries and the need to further develop such relations in the future.

The Tunisian president expressed his country’s continued pro-African orientation by setting new mechanisms to increase the political status of Africans themselves.

The two leaders discussed about the coronavirus pandemic, which has almost hit all regions of the world. Saied stressed that the actions taken by each country in the world were still not enough, as evidenced by the aggravation of the pandemic and the high number of deaths even in large countries with developed economies.

The Tunisian minister stressed that facing this pandemic requires a global effort, adding that the United Nations must make every effort possible to discover new ways and mechanisms to contain the virus because it represents a major threat to humanity, regardless of nations or borders.
