Szijjártó Discusses Tunisia Situation With UAE Counterpart


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


Szijjártó noted in a Facebook post that 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 sub-Saharan Africa,” he said. Al Nahyan and Szijjártó agreed in a phone call that outside “tampering” with the situation could lead to destabilisation, Szijjártó said.
