Tunisia’s National Constitution Assembly (NCA) celebrated the adoption of the country’s new constitution during an extraordinary session held on Friday.
The ceremony was attended by several personalities, including Prince Moulay Rachid who represented Morocco’s King Mohammed VI . French President Francois Hollande and other heads of state including the presidents of Senegal and Mauritania, as well as, representatives of international organizations including the United Nations, the European Union, and the Arab League were also present.
At this occasion, Prince Moulay Rachid conveyed the greetings and congratulations of His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the Tunisian Prime Minister, Mehdi Jomaa, on the occasion of the adoption of the new Constitution and the strong determination of the Monarch to strengthen relations between the two countries.
Prince Moulay Rachid also congratulated Mehdi Jomaa for the trust placed in him by the National Assembly to lead the government.
For his part, the Tunisian Prime Minister expressed his thanks and great appreciation for the Moroccan high-level representation, considering it “reflects the importance of Tunisia to Morocco.”
Mr. Jomaa also expressed willingness to strengthen the ties between Morocco and Tunisia, noting that strengthening ties with the Maghreb countries, in particularly the Kingdom of Morocco, is a priority for Tunisia.
While war rages in Syria, political conflict drags on in Egypt and several other countries are struggling to realize the aspirations of the 2011 revolts, Tunisia has survived a confrontation between Islamists and secularists and now has a government of technocrats preparing for elections later this year.
After reaching a political consensus that brought together the various components representing the Tunisian people, one of the main goals for Tunisia on the diplomatic front is to push toward a regional integration in the Maghreb countries: Morocco, Algeria, Libya and Mauritania.
In this frame, Tunisia will have to intensify its partnership with Morocco, which is seen by many observers as the driver for the construction of this common space thanks to the pragmatic vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, who has consistently emphasized the need to build a strong united and democratic Maghreb.
