Tunisian President Visits UK

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki arrived in London on Sunday (November 25th) to begin a three-day working visit to the United Kingdom, TAP reported.

The trip follows the decision of the UK Royal Institute of International Affairs to award the "Chatham House" Prize to both Marzouki and Ennahdha chief Rached Ghannouchi "for the successful compromises each achieved during Tunisia's democratic transition".

During his visit, Marzouki will address the House of Commons.
