Press release: Foreign Secretary congratulates Nobel Peace Prize winners

Discussion in 'MoD News' started by MoD_RSS, Dec 10, 2015.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

    I send my warmest congratulations to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet in being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Tunisia has shown that a democratic transition is possible when all parties commit to dialogue and compromise. It has shown that political parties with differing perspectives can work together in a democratic government in the national interest. And its achievements of freedom, tolerance and mutual respect stand in stark contrast to Daesh’s evil narrative. This has made it a target of attacks, with tragic consequences for both our countries.

    I repeat the pledge I made to Tunisia’s leaders on my visit to Tunis last month. The UK will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you and fight this threat together. Tunisia’s democracy will prevail. This will be the rightful legacy of the Quartet’s important work.
