Tunisian President Kais Saied said in a France 24 TV interview that the legal standing of Turkey’s intervention in Libya is better than that of other countries, and that the imminent danger is the possibility that Libya would be partitioned, as he pointed out has happened to other federal states in the past, reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

He emphasized that Libya should remain unified and that its partition would endanger Tunisia and Algeria.

In addition, President Saied said that no country, including the United States, has dared to ask him for permission to build military bases on Tunisian soil. He stressed that there will be no foreign military bases in Tunisia.
