Tunisia: 'France Continuing Support for Democratic Transition Process in Tunisia' - Benguigui

Bardo — "France is continuing its support for the process of democratic transition in Tunisia," French Deputy Minister for Francophonie said on Tuesday.

Mrs. Benguigui, who was received in Bardo by Speaker of the National Constituent Assembly (NCA) Mustapha Ben Jaafar, shed light on the training programme targeting Tunisian craftswomen and the French language training programme dedicated to Africa which will mobilise 100 thousand teachers.

Mr. Ben Jaafar placed emphasis on the process of democratic building started by Tunisia. This process, he said, requires a considerable national effort and significant international support, particularly from France, through the vitalisation of co-operation agreements in job creation and revision of the volume of assistance allocated to cultural and social co-operation.

According to a NCA press statement, Ben Jaafar and the French official discussed the Palestinian issue, stressing, in this regard, the role of France in mobilising the public opinion to defend the Palestinian cause and force Israel to cease its hostilities in Gaza.
