UN secretary general to meet with Tunisia's leaders
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon was due to continue his North African trip in Tunisia on Tuesday, where he is to meet the country's post-revolutionary leadership and youth representatives, the local UN office said, DPA reported.
Ban will meet with interim President Foued Mebazaa, interim Prime Minister Beji Caid Essebsi and Foreign Minister Mouldi Kefi, the UN said Monday.
He will also take part in a round-table discussion with young people.
Tunisia's youth toppled the country's dictatorial leader Zine el- Abidine Ben Ali in January through a campaign of street protests organized mainly through Facebook and Twitter. The Tunisian uprising - the first of its kind in North Africa or the Middle East - inspired revolutions in Egypt and Libya.
Since Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia in mid-January, the country has been run by an transitional government of mostly technocrats.
The UN secretary general was in Cairo on Monday.
