Tunisia: PM Confers With Algerian National People's Assembly Speaker

Algiers — "The Tunisian people could not be compelled to any ideology whatsoever or a religious fanaticism or even to a fanatical behaviour," Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali asserted, on Monday.

At a talk in Algiers with National People's Assembly Speaker Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa, Mr. Jebali estimated that "the experience has shown that terrorism and use of force in society and politics are unacceptable and have no chance to succeed."

The Prime Minister pointed out in another connection, the interdependence of interests between Tunisia and Algeria and the imperative to develop bilateral co-operation, asserting that the Tunisian government is endeavouring to energise co-ordination and consultation committees between the two countries and reinforcing exchange of views and information in various fields.

For his part, Mr. Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa insisted on the importance of boosting bilateral parliamentary co-operation and look at means to consolidate co-operation aspects in culture and media fields and between the civil society in both countries, specifying that the edification of a unified Arab Maghreb is one of Algeria's main objectives.
