Tunisia strongly denounces the shameful statements of political figures who call on foreign parties to intervene in internal affairs and incite against the country to compromise its rectification process and harm its foreign relations.
In a statement issued Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stresses that Tunisia, which reaffirms its full commitment to protecting the rights and freedoms, particularly freedom of expression, is astonished at the fact that these comments were made by personalities who held high office (in reference to former President of the Republic Moncef Marzouki).
In its statement, the department regrets the lack of a sense of responsibility in this delicate context which requires closing ranks for the general interest of the country. That interest must be placed above all other considerations.
Tunisia will remain attached to its sovereignty and the independence of its decision. It will defend its relations with its partners on the basis of equality and mutual respect, reads the same source. It reaffirms that Tunisia does not accept interference in its internal affairs.
Former President of the Republic Moncef Marzouki, appeared in a video posted on the social media where he called on France to reject what he called a “coup” in Tunisia and not to support President Kais Saied.
Marzouki was participating in a protest rally against the exceptional measures organised in the French capital Saturday .
