02 March 2016 - TAP - The “fluidity” of the democratic transition process in Tunisia makes us even more determined to take up the challenges facing Tunisia, said Prime Minister Habib Essid during the evening organized Tuesday in honour of Tunisia at the peace palace, the International Court of Justice in the Hague (the Netherlands).

Tunisia has succeeded to materialize the culture of dialogue thanks to  the Quartet—the Nobel Peace Prize winners—which had endeavoured “to  unify all Tunisians around a strategic consensus,” Essid pointed out.

On an official visit to the Netherlands which is  now President of the European Union Council, the PM underlined however the need for the support of sisterly and friendly countries and the international community in general to “help Tunisia materialize its projects.”

We have succeeded to establish a culture of dialogue and we are capable to meet the aspirations of Tunisian people,” he said.

Taking the floor, Mayor of the Hague Jozias Johannes van Aartsen estimated that Tunisia has become “a signal light” of peace in all the region thanks to the courage and efforts of the quartet which had unified the Tunisian people ranks and consecrated the principles of consensus and  dialogue.

This country, though it represents a success model, shall be supported by the European community in order to finish off its successful experience, estimated van Aartsen.

Baptised the Evening of Peace, the event was organized in honour of Premier Habib Essid and the Quartet, the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize winners.

It was attended notably by Culture Minister Sonia M’barek and Tourism and Handicrafts Minister Selma Rkik.
