(TAP) – Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui renewed on Thursday Tunisia’s condemnation of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Al-Quds as Israel’s capital and to transfer the U.S. embassy from Tel-Aviv to Al-Quds.

“This decision will hinder efforts to relaunch the peace process and will dive the region in a spiral of tension and instability,” he warned in a statement on the occasion of the 10th session of the Bali Democracy Forum, held in Indonesia’s Jakarta.

“It will further have negative impacts on the Arab, Islamic and Christian public opinion given the place Al-Quds has among the region’s peoples,” he added.

The FM reaffirmed Tunisia’s stable position in favour of the righteous Palestinian cause and its support to all efforts aiming to find a peaceful settlement to this issue in accordance with the United Nations’ resolutions and related international agreements.

Jhinaoui is currently paying a two-day working visit to Indonesia, at the invitation of his Indonesian counterpart Retno Marsudi to take part in the 10th Bali Democracy Forum.

Representatives of 60 countries and several regional and international organisations are attending this forum.

The minister is expected to hold meetings with his Indonesian opposite number and several Indonesian senior officials.

Means to reinforce co-operation relations between both countries and the follow-up of the outcomes of the 10th Tunisian-Indonesian Joint Commission, that was held early October in Tunis, will be discussed during these meetings.
