Tunisian President announces his final position on Syria
Tunisian President Kais Saied said that there is no justification for the absence of a Tunisian ambassador in Damascus, announcing his intention to restore diplomatic relations with Syria at the level of ambassadors.
“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,” Saeed said in an interview with the Tunisian foreign minister broadcast by official media.
Saeed had announced his country’s rejection of any steps or efforts to divide Syria, and he had announced his intention to go to reopen relations with Damascus after the earthquake that the country witnessed last February.
Tunisian-Syrian relations were severed in 2012 during the Ennahda Party, one of the branches of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia.
