Tunisian revolution not for export says Rachid Ghannouchi

The Tunisian revolution is not to be exported to other countries, Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s Ennahda movement, said. 

“The Tunisian revolution was a local formula for solving internal problems,” Ghannouchi told Anadolu Agency in an exclusive interview. 

“The revolution is not for export,” he said. 

In 2011, mass street protests led to the ousting of longtime autocrat Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.

Tunisia was the birthplace of the Arab Spring revolutions that swept several Arab countries such as Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen. 

Ghannouchi said Ennahda movement is committed to the foreign policy of the Tunisian state. 

“We don’t need to take lessons from anyone about this,” he said.
