Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt offers continued UK support for the democratic transition underway in Tunisia.
Speaking today Alistair Burt said:
I wanted to express the UK’s appreciation of the important work Mr Jebali has done as Prime Minister over the past year to support Tunisia’s democratic transition. We welcome his efforts in recent weeks to build consensus and bring political stability to Tunisia.
As a new government is formed, it remains essential that Tunisia’s political leaders work together in a spirit of co-operation to guide the country to the next elections. We affirm the UK’s support for Tunisia in this ongoing transition.
