Alwaght- Tunisia has declared opposition to a recent Saudi-imposed Arab League resolution that designated Hezbollah resistance movement as a ‘terrorist’ organization.
Tunisian Foreign Minister Khamis al-Jehinawi said on Sunday that his country's representative to the Arab League meeting told the conferees that Tunisia opposes the AL statement regarding Hezbollah.
Speaking to local media outlets, Al-Jheinawi said Tunisia still has the same position it adopted following the Arab Interior Ministers' statement.
The official stressed his country does not classify Hezbollah as a terrorist group, and called for dialogue to solve the issue.
"Hezbollah liberated a part of occupied Lebanese lands, and his positions towards the Palestinian cause are a source of pride," he said.
Earlier Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Algeria rejected the Arab League’s decision against Hezbollah.
At a meeting of the Arab League’s foreign ministers in Cairo on Friday, the group declared Hezbollah a terrorist organization. The Saudi-imposed measure has divided the Pan-Arab body.
The decision came after the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council officially added Hezbollah to its so-called list of “terrorist” organizations on March 2. The (P) GCC comprises Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait.
A number of Arab political parties issued on Saturday statements in which they condemned the Arab League's decision which blacklisted Hezbollah as a terrorist group.
