Tunisia: Situation in Siliana Discussed As NCA Speaker Meets UGTT S-G

Bardo — The latest developments in Siliana and ways to reach urgent solutions to ease the tension prevailing in the Governorate for some days were discussed at a meeting held Thursday between National Constituent Assembly (NCA) Speaker Mustapha Ben Jaafar and Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Houcine Abassi.
