CAIRO – 2 June 2022: Tunisian President Qais Said stated Wednesday at a Cabinet meeting that a list of judges who committed violations would be released soon, and that the findings are the outcome of investigations that were carried out over many weeks.


The Tunisian president pointed out that such violations would put the higher interests of the country in jeopardy. As those include financial corruption, forgery of official documents, and obstructing justice by covering up evidence that would incriminate terrorists, and politicians; some of whom were holding official positions. Further, the judges in question crippled investigations in 6,278 terrorist cases.  


Egyptian Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli told President Said in May that President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi affirms Egypt's full support for the measures he takes to accomplish political and constitutional reform. That was during their meeting at Carthage Palace in Tunis.


President Saied underscored his appreciation and respect for President Sisi for saving Egypt in a difficult historic stage and for launching an urban and development renaissance.


The Tunisian President also lauded President Sisi’s support for Tunisia during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, referring to President Sisi’s directives to supply Tunisia with all the medical supplies and medicines it needed.


Madbouly stressed Egypt’s keenness to transfer its expertise in the political and economic reform field. On the other hand, The Tunisian President affirmed Tunisia’s support for Egypt regarding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam issue, saying that Tunisia's security is part of Egypt's national security.


Egypt and Tunisia agreed to make 2022-2023 a year of activating economic cooperation between the two countries, and to activate a maritime shipping line between both sides.


This was announced by Egyptian Prime Minister Moustafa Mabouli in his speech at the Egyptian-Tunisian Economic Forum that was co-chaired by him and his Tunisian counterpart Najla Bouden during his visit to the neighboring state last month.


Madbouli noted that the trade exchange volume between the two countries slumped in the past two years to nearly 50 percent due to the successive crises of the coronavirus and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.


“Egypt is ready to activate a regular maritime line between the two countries, but the private sector must participate on both sides,” he said.


For her part, the Tunisian Prime Minister said that her country is working on facilitating the entry procedures with the electronic visa for businessmen.


As for olive oil production, the Tunisian Minister of Agriculture affirmed his country’s complete readiness to cooperate with the Egyptian side and exchange experience in this field.


That would be achieved by establishing partnerships aimed at providing Egyptian olive oil producers with more high-quality capabilities to be able to compete in the global market.
