NATO Secretary General statement on the Tunisian elections

I congratulate the Tunisian people who participated in the country's first free and fair elections for the Constituent Assembly. They showed their firm commitment to freedom and democracy. This is a historic achievement for the country that opened the way for the Arab Spring and another important milestone for the whole region.

Tunisia is a valued partner in NATO's Mediterranean Dialogue  and I look forward to enhancing our partnership.
