Through this decision, the nation’s first democratic leadership, headed up by President Beji Caid Essebsi, and the other main political leaders of Tunisia, have once again shown their great sense of responsibility in facing up to the major economic, political and security challenges that the country must tackle in order to firm up the achievements of an exemplary transition.
Tunisia will continue to count on the full friendship and support of the government, the political forces and the people of Spain in accompanying it in its committed path towards the consolidation of an open and democratic political system and in its efforts towards ensuring the well-being of all its people.
Furthermore, the government reiterates its willingness to continue collaborating with the authorities of Tunisia in tackling the blight of terrorism that affects all people in the Mediterranean region.
