Tunisia, a successful example in Muslim world: Iran

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tunisia serves as a successful example of people’s participation in state affairs for Muslim countries.

“Tunisia is a successful example of people’s presence in the Muslim world and we are happy that this example has been faring well,” Zarif said upon his arrival in Tunis on Monday.

The Iranian foreign minister said during his stay in the Tunisian capital, he plans to discuss the expansion of political, cultural and economic ties with high-ranking Tunisian officials.

“The region is grappling with such issues as extremism and instability. Ongoing instability in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Yemen should be addressed through dialogue between Muslim countries,” Zarif said.

During his visit, Zarif is scheduled to meet with Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi, Prime Minister Habib Essid and Foreign Minister Taïeb Baccouche.
