Tunisian President Kais Saied affirmed his blatant rejection of interference in Tunisia’s internal affairs, saying: “We are an independent and sovereign state, and we do not accept that anyone interferes in our affairs, and we will not allow anyone to interfere in our internal affairs, and we are not a colonial or tutelage state.”
This came in a speech he delivered at the start of a working session on the national consultation on education reform, which was held at the government palace in the Kasbah.
He said, “Tunisians are not students waiting for lessons from some people. We did not express our concern about the arrests that took place in a number of countries, even in European countries, but we express our real and sincere concern when duty calls us to do so.”
Saeed stressed that the investigations before the judiciary of a number of people, which alarmed a number of capitals and authorities, “are related to a call for civil war,” and that “the law was applied by honorable judges,” denying in the same context that “arresting anyone for an opinion.” expressed or for the position he took.
He expressed his surprise that these parties were not previously disturbed by bloody events in Tunisia, including the bombing of a presidential security bus in late 2015, and the killing of 13 soldiers during the month of Ramadan.
He added that the Tunisian people will never give up their sovereignty and will continue their march to achieve the revolution.
