Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi has reiterated that his country considers Hezbollah a national resistance movement while rejecting designating it as a terrorist group.

In an interview with a Tunisian radio on Wednesday, Essebsi noted that the Arab foreign ministers statement didn’t branded Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

“Tunisia is not concerned with the war between Sunnis and Shiites,” the Tunisian president said, according to Tunisian media.Meanwhile, Essebsi stressed pointed out that some Tunisian sides exploited this issue against the government.

On the other hand, the Tunisian president stressed that Tunis won’t normalize its relations with the Israeli entity. “Tunis supports (Hezbollah Seceretary General Sayyed) Hasan Nasrallah’s party in any act against Israel,” Essebsi said.

He also pointed out that Tunisia has mutual interest with Europe, US, Saudi Arabia, UAE and the entire Arab world.

Early March Tunisia said it will not follow a Saudi-imposed decision by the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council to list the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. On March 2, the council, which comprises Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait, designated Hezbollah as a terrorist group. President Essebsi also condemned the decision by the council. The website of the Al-Chourouk daily said Essebsi had ordered Foreign Minister Khamis al-Jehinawi to officially declare Tunisia’s stance regarding the move and correct the “mistake” by the country’s interior minister in approving the declaration on Hezbollah.

The Arab League also under Saudi pressure on 11th March branded Hezbollah resistance a terrorist organization, a decision that was opposed by Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Algeria and Tunisia.
