Rabat – The recently-elected president of Tunisia Béji Caïd Essebsi is due to pay his first official visit to Algeria and Morocco later this month.
Tunisian Daily Kapitalis quoted the future official spokesman of the presidency Moez Sinaoui as saying that the date of the visit has not yet been specified.
He went on to add that the visit will take place before the 24th session of the African Union Summit, which is scheduled to take place on January 30.
Sinaoui clarified that President Essebsi will visit both Algeria and Morocco in the same day,”so as to spare the feelings of the neighbors who have an equal place in the hearts of Tunisians.”
This is not the first time Béji Caïd Essebsi has visited Morocco. In 2011, he visited Rabat with an official Tunisian delegation a few weeks after his appointment as president of the Tunisian interim government.
