Restoring Syrian-Tunisian relations
On Friday evening, Tunisian President Kais Saied announced his intention to restore severed diplomatic relations with Syria since 2012.
According to the Tunisian newspaper, Al-Shorouk, Saeed said during his meeting with Foreign Minister Nabil Ammar, “There is no justification for not having an ambassador of Tunisia to Damascus and an ambassador of the Syrian Arab Republic to Tunisia.”
He also added: “The issue of the regime in Syria concerns the Syrians alone, and Tunisia deals with the Syrian state and has absolutely nothing to do with the choices of the Syrian people.”
He also stressed that Tunisia will not accept the plan to divide the Syrian state into pieces, as was previously planned, according to him.
At the beginning of this month, Tunisian Foreign Minister Nabil Ammar and Syrian Faisal Al-Miqdad discussed ways to return relations between the two countries to their normal course and raise the level of diplomatic representation.
