Tunisia: Egyptian President Affirms Support for Saied

by | Feb 15, 2023 | Diplomacy, Tunisia


On 14 February 2023, Prime Minister Najla Bouden met with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to discuss cooperation on areas of mutual interest, including economic development and security. The two met on the sidelines of the World Government Summit in Dubai, where President Sisi expressed a desire to share Egypt’s experience in development and reform with Tunisia. Furthermore, Sisi expressed clear support for President Kais Saied and his ongoing reform effort.


While promises for future collaboration between Tunisia and Egypt are not new, President Sisi’s clear affirmation of support for President Saied was notable. Particularly as the Tunisian administration works to find partners amenable to the President’s approach and methods, a supportive, or even impartial comrade in North Africa is helpful to his cause.
