The Tunisian Presidency has announced that President Kais Saied will be visiting France to participate in the Paris Finance Summit.
Tunis Africa News Agency reported that Saied’s visit to France begins on Wednesday, at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron.
The agency noted that the Paris Summit is scheduled to be held on the 22nd and 23rd of June. Initiated by Macron, the event will host approximately 300 heads of state, governments, and international organizations, along with representatives from the private sector and civil society.
The aim of the summit is to establish the foundations of a new financial system that will enable the world to tackle the challenges of the 21st century, most notably climate change and the protection of biodiversity.
On a separate note, Saied recently affirmed that Tunisia will not be a guardian of Europe’s borders in preventing the flow of illegal immigrants.
“There are criminal networks that traffic in human beings in the countries of origin or in countries of destination in Europe,” he asserted during a phone call with President of the European Council Charles Michel.
The Tunisian leader added: “Security solutions alone are not enough to eliminate the scourge.”
