When addressing some disputes between sister countries, the President of the Republic expressed his hope that the Algeria summit would contribute to achieving “harmony” and bringing these countries closer, noting that his knowledge of what is happening in the Arab world makes him optimistic, given that “there are no major differences between the Arab countries, except for what is related to the non-acceptance of the internal policy of one country by another, which Algeria considers interference in the internal affairs of countries.
In this regard, he explained, “No country has the right to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries,” calling on Arab countries to build their relations “on this basis.”
The President of the Republic expressed his regret that “Arab countries sowed happiness and joy when other Arab countries were divided,” and asked if this was acceptable.”
The President of the Republic added that the upcoming summit will try to “unify visions on international issues outside the Arab world.”
Meanwhile, he considered that it is time to “reintegrate Syria into the Arab League,” noting that the Syrian people “have no guilt,” as it is the case for the Palestinian people, adding that “Syria collapsed due to foreign interventions and the State of Palestine has not been established for the same reason,”.
Regarding the situation in Libya, the President of the Republic said: “We agree with Tunisia that the solution in Libya is only in the hands of the Libyans themselves,” expressing his hope that “Libya will get rid of mercenaries and foreign forces and that harmony will return between the Libyan parties.”
On the other hand, the President of the Republic renewed his congratulations to Tunisia on the conclusion of its membership in the United Nations Security Council with “great success and competence”, praising its “effective” efforts to strengthen international cooperation in combating the Corona pandemic, including “the Security Council’s adoption of the important resolution No. 2532, thanks to Tunisia.”
