The return of diplomatic relations between Syria and Tunisia means a return to their normal level and that serves the two countries’ interest, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Tunisians Abroad of the Republic of Tunisia Nabil Ammar said.
Ammar added that restoring diplomatic relations to their normal level between Tunisia and Syria has been one of his main missions since he took office.
The Tunisian minister pointed out, in statements to the Tunisian news agency, that his country’s new ambassador to Syria had received his credentials and, for its part, Syria would appoint a new ambassador to Tunisia very soon, stressing that it was necessary to preserve the common interests of the two countries and expand their fields.
He described the recent visit of the Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Fayssal Mikdad to Tunisia as historic, and assured that his country “does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, and the future of Syria will be decided by the Syrian people themselves.”
Earlier, Tunisia’s President Kais Saied has appointed Mohamed Al-Mahdhabi as a new ambassador to Syria.
