tunis - Tunisia called on the American ambassador on Friday for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by US President Donald Trump. Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi will convey his dissatisfaction about this, according to one of his advisers.
Tunisia supports the Palestinians in their efforts to establish their own independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. In the south of Tunisia, on Friday morning, hundreds of people took to the streets of the city of Tataouin to demonstrate peacefully against Trump's decision.
The US tightened the security measures around the embassy in Tunis, as in many other countries.
