MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Moscow and Tunisia stand for solving crises in Libya, Syria and Yemen via national dialogue, without outside pressure, Russian Foreign Minister and visiting Secretary General of the Nidaa Tounes party Mohsen Marzouk said after a meeting on Monday.
Marzouk handed over to Lavrov a written message of Tunisia’s President Beji Caid Essebsi to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"The sides exchanged views on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa with a focus on the necessity to invigorate international efforts to find solutions to conflicts in a number of countries of this region and to rebuff the growing terrorist threat," the Russian foreign ministry said. "Marzouk stressed that Tunisia commended Russia’s constructive stabilizing role in regional affairs."
The sides agreed that "a wide national dialogue and consensus without external pressure and dictation are the only reliable way to reach lasting political settlement of the domestic crises and confrontation in Libya, Syria, Yemen and other countries," the ministry said.
Lavrov and Marzouk discussed practical issues of further development of mutually beneficial cooperation in various spheres. "The sides reiterated Moscow’s and Tunis’ commitment to give a fresh impetus to the traditionally friendly relations between the two countries and make a maximum use of the potential of the intergovernmental commission on trade-and-economic and scientific-and-technical cooperation," the ministry said.
