On the occasion of the United Nations’ 75th anniversary, Tunisian President Kais Saied said Monday that “the UN must be more united on the basis of a new set of values because humanity has entered a new era.”

In his video speech, Saied said “international relations cannot be ruled with the same principles as those of the last century and the ones before.”

According to the Tunisian president, it’s time to lift the injustices among human beings wherever they are around the world.

“Unfortunately, still many rights have not found their way into practice, mainly the right of the Palestinian people to their land,” Saied added.

“The world needs nations to be united as stipulated by the UN charter,” he concluded
