TUNIS - Tunisia said on Thursday it plans to reopen a consulate in Syria and offered to invite the Syrian ambassador back to Tunisia three years after severing diplomatic relations with Damascus.
"We will not have an ambassador there, but Tunisia
will open a consulate or put in place a charge d'affaires, and a Syria
ambassador is welcome to Tunisia
, if Syria
wishes so," Foreign Minister Taieb Bakouch
told reporters without giving a date for the measure.
