The pool was ushered in at 12:39. President Obama hailed the extraordinary progress made towards democracy in the very country where the Arab Spring first started.
He announced his intention to designate Tunisia as a major non-NATO ally.
He also stressed his commitment to expand economic and security assistance for Tunisia in order to insure its success. President Obama emphasized the importance of cooperation in order to achieve stability in the region and prevent the chaos in Libya from infecting Tunisia's progress.
The president of Tunisia reiterated his message that his country is still half way in its march towards democracy and warned that progress is threatened by those who oppose democratic principles and the chaos in neighboring Libya.
Spotted on the Tunisian side:
Mohamed Shleifa: Secretary of State for foreign affairs.
Mohsen Marzouk, Presidential Political adviser.
Kmeis Jinaoui: Diplomatic Adviser.
Salim Azabi: Presidential adviser.
