Tunisia will definitely have its ambassador in Damascus, President Kais Saied announced without specifying the date.
This was during his meeting, Friday with Minister of Foreign Affairs, Migration and Tunisians Abroad Nabil Ammar, according to a footage published by the Presidency of the Republic.
President Saied considered that “there is no justification or reason not to have a Tunisian ambassador in Damascus or an ambassador of the Syrian Republic in Tunis.
He added that “the issue of the regime in Syria is a purely Syrian-Syrian issue and that Tunisia deals with the Syrian State and has absolutely nothing to do with the choices of the Syrian people.”
President Kais Saied underlined that “it is no longer a question for Tunisia to see Syria, a country fragmented and torn to pieces, as the engineers of the Sykes-Picot agreement did in the past when they drew up drafts of constitutions for micro-states that could potentially emerge from the Syrian state.”
Referring to works of the 159th ministerial session of the Council of the League of Arab States held last week in Cairo, the Head of State underscored the key role played by Tunisia through one of its activists in the drafting of a constitution for the United Arab Republic in the holy city of Al-Quds in 1955 and its hosting of the headquarters of the Arab League for many years.
n this regard, he affirmed that Tunisia is proud of its membership in the Arab nation, the Islamic nation, Africa and the whole of humanity, and that it sees the issues and problems of the day from this perspective and not from an approach based on ideas and preconceived visions since the beginning of the 20th century.
He added that it is time, high time to put an end to the atrocities, sufferings and setbacks of peoples, first and foremost those of the Palestinian people, adding that several African peoples are still enduring a tragic fate “despite the tremendous wealth of their countries.”
Tunisia aspires to a solution for the whole of humanity. A solution based on the values of justice, honesty and frank dialogue and not a solution tailored to foreign standards.
