The speech of Abdelhafidh Harguem, Chief editor of «Leaders Arabiya» newspaper (Tunisia), at the International media forum "Journalists of Muslim countries against extremism".

«Tunisia was a safe country for many years, but unfortunately in the recent years with the spread of terrorism Tunisia has also become one of the victims of terrorism. There are several reasons for that. One of them is geographical. Tunisia is bordering on Libya, where are several terrorist organizations. When we talk about terrorism we should not talk only about Syria and Iraq but also about the North of Africa. Tunisia has now started a full-scale war against terrorism. And the duty to fight terrorism is not only the duty of the state and authorities. It is also a duty of the society,» – tells Abdelhafidh Harguem, Chief editor of «Leaders Arabiya» newspaper (Tunisia), at the International media forum “Journalists of Muslim countries against extremism”, that took place in Moscow on December, 8-9, 2015.
