Meeting, Tuesday, the Crisis Response Unit in charge of following-up developments in Libya looked at the issue of the two Tunisian journalists Sofiene Chourabi and Nadhir Gtari and the staffer at Tunisia’s embassy in Tripoli Oualid Ksiksi abducted in Libya.

Taking the floor, Foreign Minister Mongi Hamdi reviewed the initiatives made and the consultations carried out with Libyan official and non-official personalities, to identify the abductors, know the place of the hostages’ confinement, enquire about their health state, favour their release and ensure their safe return to the country.

According to a press release of the Foreign Ministry, the meeting also turned on the outcome of the talks held by the Tunisian Consul General in Libya with Libyan officials, the development of the political situation in this country and the latest security developments, notably on the Tunisian-Libyan borders.
