Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Tunisian People Abroad issued a statement that evening that these news were unfounded and fully supported Bhal with Tunisia.
The legitimate principled position of Stan’s just cause and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people conflict.
The statement said that President Said took a firm stand on this issue.
He has repeatedly stressed that the rights of the Palestinian people cannot be arranged or restricted, the most important of which is their right to self-determination and the right to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
The statement said that this principled position stems from the will of the Tunisian people.
Tunisia reiterates its conviction that a just, lasting and comprehensive peace in the region cannot be achieved without Israel implementing the decision on the return of international legitimacy to the Occupied Palestinian Territory and its right to establish an independent state.
Finally, the statement reaffirmed that Tunisia would not participate in any initiative that undermined the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and that it would not establish diplomatic relations with Israel as long as it continued to implement policies that undermine international legitimacy and the principles of international law.
