The Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad will visit Tunisia tomorrow, Monday, to reopen his country’s embassy in Tunisia after 11 years of estrangement between the two countries since 2012.

A statement by the Tunisian Foreign Ministry stated that this three-day visit, at the invitation of Foreign Minister Nabil Ammar, “comes as a dedication to the long-standing fraternal ties existing between the two brotherly countries and within the framework of keenness to restore bilateral relations to their normal course.”

The statement stressed that the visit comes after “the appointment of an ambassador of the Republic of Tunisia to the Syrian Arab Republic and the decision of the Syrian authorities to reopen the Syrian embassy in Tunisia and to appoint an ambassador at its head for the good and interest of the two brotherly peoples.”

Tunisia announced a week ago the appointment of its ambassador to the Syrian capital, Damascus, Muhammad al-Mahdhabi, after Tunisian President Kais Saied directed orders to Foreign Minister Nabil Ammar to take the necessary steps to appoint Tunisia’s new ambassador to Damascus, and he said that there is no justification for Tunisia not having an ambassador in Syria.
