L’agence de presse officielle algérienne (APS) rapporte que dans un communiqué rendu public le 11 juillet 2013, l’Union générale des travailleurs algériens (UGTA) a exprimé sa solidarité et son soutien d’une part, aux travailleurs et au peuple tunisien face à « la situation critique » que vit leur pays, et d’autre part à l’Union générale des travailleurs tunisiens (UGTT), dans ses actions pour « la défense et la sauvegarde des valeurs démocratiques et républicaines de la Tunisie ».

Dans ce communiqué, l’UGTA a vigoureusement condamné l’assassinat de Mohamed Brahmi ainsi que les attentats terroristes commis contre l’armée tunisienne au mont Châambi.

L’UGTA a, en outre, qualifié les événements qui marquent la scène politique en Tunisie comme étant «de plus en plus préoccupants ».

TEHRAN – Iran has called on the Tunisian people to maintain unity after a prominent opposition leader was assassinated on Thursday.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi on Saturday condemned the killing of Mohammed Brahmi, leader of the Popular Current party, saying that such desperate attempts are meant to lead the revolution in the country to a deadlock.
The only way out of the current situation is maintaining national cohesion and unity and making efforts to root out terrorism in the country, Araqchi said.
He also expressed sympathy with the Tunisian people and government over the incident, calling on them to exercise vigilance when dealing with such actions.
According to BBC, a state funeral was held for the Tunisian opposition leader who was killed by gunmen in the capital, Tunis.
His death has sparked widespread unrest.
The interior minister said Mr. Brahmi, 58, was killed with the same gun as a fellow left-wing politician, Chokri Belaid, who was shot dead in February.
Thousands of protesters gathered in Tunis on Friday after the biggest trade union, UGTT, called a general strike to denounce general “terrorism, violence, and murders.”

Still a Long Way to Go for Tunisian Democracy

Notes internacionals CIDOB, núm. 73

Tunisia remains very dependent on international good will: despite receiving aid and loans worth $1.5bn last year, the growing current account deficit has reduced hard currency reserves to the equivalent of three and a half months cover of imports.
