Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi feted President Abdel Fattah El Sisi as capable of carrying out great work serving the African nations during his chairmanship of the African Union.
In statements to the Tunisian newspaper Alchourouk on Tuesday, he said “Egypt is in its right position now, and President El-Sisi who managed to do a good job in his nation is capable of doing the same at the continental level.”
During the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Essebsi underlined the key role of the African Union in realizing stability in the continent and confronting terrorism.
As for Syria’s return to the Arab League, he said Tunisia is committed to the Arab decision and this needs a consensus among Arab nations.
