Russia believes that internal problems in Tunisia will be settled solely by legal means, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday.
“We assume that internal problems in Tunisia will be settled within the rule of law. We hope that the friendly relations and comprehensive cooperation between Russia and Tunisia will continue to develop steadily in the interests of the peoples of our countries,” it said.
The ministry noted that, according to reports coming from the Tunisian capital and other large cities, the situation there is relatively calm. “The international airport, utility services, transport infrastructure are operating routinely,” the ministry added.
“In view of the current situation in Tunisia, we strongly recommend Russian nationals staying in this country be vigilant, refrain from visiting crowded places and keep an eye on information posted on the Russian embassy’s website,” the ministry said.
