Tunisia: National Security Council - Commitment to Restoring State's Authority

Carthage — Efforts are being made to bolster security and stability in the country and restore the State's prestige, interim PM Mehdi Jomaa said on Monday.

He underlined at the end of a regular meeting of the National Security Council that the operations in Chaambi represent a qualitative leap in addressing the issue of terrorism.

The Prime Minister added that security and army units have taken control of the situation and made significant steps in fighting terrorism.

He reiterated the government's commitment to uphold the supremacy of law throughout the country and re-establish the State's authority.

Speaking of the terrorist attack which occurred last weekend in Algeria, Jomaa expressed condolences to the people and government of Algeria. He affirmed full solidarity with this neighbouring country.

Jomaa emphasised the achievements made by Algeria in combating terrorism.

Tunisia and Algeria are now facing one enemy that could be easily defeated through strengthened co-operation and co-ordination, he also stressed.
