Keys of Sfax Medina to be soon be handed over to municipality

Plundered in 1881, the keys of the Medina of Sfax will soon be handed over to the municipality of the city.

These keys will remain temporarily at the Institut Franccais in Sfax before returning them officially to the new town hall of Sfax which will be elected in the next municipal elections scheduled on December 17, 2017, said French ambassador to Tunisia Olivier Poivre d’Arvor.

It is a symbolic gesture that reflects the deep friendship between Tunisia and France, added the French diplomat at a ceremony organised Wednesday evening at the house of France in Sfax on the occasion of the celebration of France National Day (14 July), recalling that the keys were at the Musee de la Marine, who was chairman of the board of directors (2014 � 2016).

Poivre d’Arvor underlined on this occasion that the Institut Francais Tunisia (IFT) will organise on 13, 14 and 15 October the new edition of the Youth Forum which will have as theme “local democracy and the commitment of young people to serve their countries “

At the heart of the inland regions, this annual gathering will bring together more than one hundred young associative actors from Tunisia, France, the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa, engaged in civil society. The opportunity will be seized by all these young people to set up, during workshops, innovative projects

In April 2017, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who was received at the Carthage palace, handed President Beji CaA�d Essebsi a replica of the keys of the City of Sfax
