TUNIS, Tunisia — Tunisia's new foreign minister on Saturday said his country isn't going to lecture Egyptians on what path their country should take, following this week's anti-government protests.

Ahmed Ounaies said the two Arab countries are different and must each chart their own course.

He told The Associated Press Saturday "it is up to the Egyptian people to decide their present and their future for themselves. We are not going to decide on their behalf or give them any lessons."

Violent protests in Tunisia led to the ouster of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia on Jan. 14 after 23 years in power. Ounaies was named to the interim government Thursday in a shuffle that dropped most old guard ministers.

Cairo remains in chaos after five days of protests.
