PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia is deeply concerned about the latest political development in Tunisia, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir (pic) said.

He said Malaysia was following the situation closely, including the detention of a leader of the Ennahda party and former Speaker of the Assembly of the Representatives of the People, Rached Ghannouchi.

"While acknowledging that the developments constitute Tunisia’s internal affairs, Malaysia remains deeply concerned about the latest political development in the country.

"Owing to his health and age, we appeal for special consideration and mercy to be accorded to Rached Ghannouchi during this blessed month of Ramadan,” Zambry said in a statement on Thursday (April 20).

Malaysia sincerely hopes that national reconciliation and consensus would be the path towards bringing about progress and prosperity for the people of Tunisia, he said.

"We always wish the best for the brotherly country of Tunisia and its people,” he added. - Bernama
