The Tunisian President sent greetings and appreciation to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Highness the Crown Prince, the government and people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

Covid-19 aid to Tunisia
Saied praised the Kingdom’s unwavering support for his country, as well as the response of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to His Excellency’s request, made during his call with His Highness the Crown Prince, for the allocation of medical materials to aid in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).
During the reception, the Minister of Foreign Affairs emphasized that the Kingdom recognizes and considers everything connected to Tunisian internal affairs to be a sovereign concern, underlining the Kingdom’s support for everything that promotes the country’s security and stability.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs also reaffirmed the Kingdom’s faith in Tunisian leadership’s ability to overcome these challenges and provide a good life and prosperity for their people.
This comes after President Kais Saied ousted the government and froze the parliament in July. Saied moves came after large protests across the country against the government and the biggest party in parliament, the Islamist Ennahda.
