Tunisian authorities are now able to better protect foreign visitors (Louise De Sousa)

Tunisia’s ambassador in Tunis Louise De Sousa said Wednesday that “the Tunisian authorities’ ability to mitigate terrorist threats and better protect foreign visitors has improved, which, according to her, is a progress.

Speaking at a press briefing, De Sousa added that the British authorities lifted the travel restrictions to Tunisia because “there were no terrorist operations targeting foreign tourists in Tunisia since the Sousse attack in June 2015.”

She explained that the decision to restrict travel had been taken within the framework of the United Kingdom’s foreign policy. The British Foreign Office warned against travel in the event of terrorist threats or extreme and imminent danger which could seriously affect British nationals.

The British diplomat, however, pointed out that this change of travel advice to Tunisia “does not mean that there is no risk for British nationals who visit Tunisia,” specifying that consulting with the authorities before travelling to Tunisia remains necessary.

However, travel is not recommended to some regions, including closed military zones in southern and western Tunisia and the Libyan border, Louise De Sousa underlined.
