US officials: Kerry to praise progress on unannounced visit to Tunisia

Published: 02.18.14, 14:25 / Israel News

US Secretary of State John Kerry made an unannounced visit to Tunisia on Tuesday to praise democratic progress in the country where the "Arab Spring" began and discuss its efforts to tackle Islamist militants, his staff said.

 

After a crisis last year brought on by the killing of two opposition leaders, Tunisia's transition got back on track when it adopted a
new constitution last month and ruling Islamists stepped down for a caretaker administration to govern until elections this year.

 

Kerry's visit was meant to highlight progress made since the 2011 uprising that brought down autocrat Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali and the compromises new Tunisian leaders, unlike their Egyptian and Libyan counterparts, have made, US officials said. (Reuters)
