It has always worked between Tunisia and France and our relations will start from future perspective, says CaA�d Essebsi in an interview with Cnews

“It has always worked between Tunisia and France and I think that relations between the two countries will” start on a new basis in a future perspective, “said President Beji CaA�d Essebsi in an interview Thursday morning with the French news channel “CNews”.

“Relations between Tunisia and France have always been excellent, even before the election of the present French President, Emmanuel Macron,” he insisted in this interview conducted by Jean-Pierre Alkabbach which intervenes concomitantly with the visit to Tunisia of French President Emmanuel Macron.

“Tunisia has initiated a democratic process that guarantees the freedom of the press, expressions and demonstrations,” said Essebsi.

“In Tunisia, we have engaged in a democratic process where the freedoms of the press, expression and demonstrations are respected,” he said, denying any attempt to apply restrictions on these freedoms.

“The protests in the first half of January 2018 are mainly expressions of discontent by young people looking for jobs,” he said.

“It is the duty of those responsible to find solutions to reduce unemployment by creating new job opportunities for young people and adapting training to the needs of the Tunisian labour market,” indicated the head of state, who said he was perfectly aware of the suffering of young people in working-class neighborhoods.

Moreover, President Beji Caid Essebsi refrained from answering a question about the possibility of running for a second presidential term, saying in essence: “Whoever wants to succeed me, should go through the elections and get a wide vote “.

He ensured, in the same connection, that he has no heir to power and that his son Hafedh CaA�d Essebsi “does politics like any other politician and is neither part of the government nor ‘other state apparatus’.
