Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki has reiterated support for the Libyan government, shortly after the denial of a military coup attempt in the Arab country.
 
In a phone call with Speaker of Libya's General National Congress (interim parliament) Nouri Abusahmain, Marzouki said that Tunisia stands by Libya in its democratic transition.

"Security in both Libya and Tunisia is inseparable," Marzouki was quoted as saying by the official Libyan news agency.

For his part, Abusahmain denied reports about a military coup in Libya.

"The situation is stable in Libya and the democratic path is moving forward," he said.

Army general Khalifa Hatar had claimed that his forces had seized control of key military sites in the country.

But the government of Prime Minister Ali Zeidan had denied the claim, saying that all military sites were under the control of the defense and interior ministries.
