17.01.2011 / 16:04
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic has been closely following the evolving situation in Tunisia over the past several weeks.
We welcome the opportunity for political change towards greater openness, democracy and public restraint on power. We regret the victims of the recent unrest and hope that the current Tunisian leadership will soon ensure security, restore normal functioning of the country and prepare free and fair elections. Reflecting the long friendship between our two countries, the Czech Republic stands ready to work with Tunisia on further developing our ties and cooperation.
