Tunisian Foreign Minister Khamis Al-Jheinawi said on Sunday that his country's representative to the Arab League meeting told the conferees that Tunisia opposes the AL statement regarding Hezbollah.

Speaking to local media outlets, Al-Jheinawi said Tunisia still has the same position it adopted following the Arab Interior Ministers' statement.
