Tunis closes down its office in Tel Aviv
Tunisia-Israel, Politics, 7/28/1998
The French magazine "John Afrique" reported that the Tunisian government decided as of the beginning of July to close down its office in Tel Aviv, noting that in 1997 Tunis summoned the office director, Nabil Saffar.
The magazine said that the second man in the office, Khamis Jhenawi, was asked to pack his luggage and that Israel did the same when it summoned its representative in Tunis, Shaloum Cohen, who used to reside in a hotel in the Tunisian capital.
The French magazine elaborated these decisions have all come following the refusal of the Tunisian authorities to grant entry visas to Israelis who wanted to take part in European-Mediterranean meetings, as well as its refusal of an American decision to host the forthcoming economic summit on North Africa and the Middle East.
