April 20, 2011 - TAP - French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé arrived late on Wednesday morning in Tunis on a two-day visit.
During this visit, the first since he took office, Mr. Juppé will have talks with Interim President Foued Mebazaa and Prime Minister Béji Caid Essebsi.
He will also meet with the heads of the three commissions tasked with transition, namely the High Authority for the Achievement of Revolution Objectives, Political Reform and Democratic Transition, the National Fact-Finding Commission on Embezzlement and Corruption and the National Fact-Finding Commission on Abuses committed during the uprising.
"Tunisia is not at all abandoned. We are making every effort to help it," Mr. Juppé declared on the sidelines of a symposium held Saturday by the French Foreign Ministry on "the Arab Spring" at the Paris-based Arab World Institute.
Several French Ministers visited Tunisia since last January 14, including the Ministers of Economy and European Affairs.
The Head of the French diplomacy was greeted at Tunis-Carthage Airport by Foreign Minister Mouldi Kéfi.
