Szijjarto discusses Tunisia situation with UAE counterpart

All outside pressure on Tunisia could destabilise the country further, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said late on Saturday, after talks with his counterpart in the United Arab Emirates, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Szijjarto noted in a Facebook post that the Tunisian President Kais Saied had recently suspended the country’s parliament and dismissed its prime minister.

“Events in North Africa are very important for Europe, as we do not want another country to become a transit country for migration waves from subsaharan Africa,” he said.

In a phone call late on Saturday, Al Nahyan and Szijjarto agreed that outside “tampering” with the situation could lead to destabilisation, Szijjarto said.
