Caretaker President of the Republic Mohamed Moncef Marzouki received from his Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Bouteflika, in his name and on behalf of the Algerian brotherly people, a message in which he voiced support to Tunisia in its fight against terrorism. The Algerian Head of State voiced conviction that this heinous crime “will never prevent the determination of the Tunisian people to overcome terrorism.”

In turn, The Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra stigmatised, in a talk with his Tunisian counterpart Mongi Hamdi, this “cowardly act”, reasserting Algeria’s solidarity with Tunisia. He said he never doubted the capacity of the Tunisian people to overcome this ordeal “as did before the Algerian people, to eradicate for good terrorism,” asserting that “Tunisia will continue to move forward in its work under way for the edification of a new, g and safe state.”

King Mohammed VI of Morocco sent to President Moncef Marzouki a message of condolences and sympathy in which he expressed his indignation of “this heinous terrorist act” and his solidarity with the government and the Tunisian people in front of these criminal acts hated by Islam.

Egypt, according to its spokesperson and its Foreign Minister Badr Abdel-Ati condemned with force the terrorist attack of Mount Chaambi. Terrorism, he said, is a “global scourge which is neither linked to a determined religion nor to a people, but strives to undermine stability and development all around the world.”

It is necessary, he added, “to combine regional and international efforts to face it up and eliminate it.”
