The Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs disclosed that Tunisia had refused the invitation to attend the Berlin Conference on Libya, explaining that its rejection came due to the last-minute invitation sent by Germany to Tunisia on Friday.

"Because of the late invitation and for being ruled out from the preparatory path for this summit that commenced since last September -despite Tunisia has repeatedly insisted that it should be at the forefront of participating countries in any international effort that takes into account Tunisia's interests and the interests of the brotherly Libyan people-, it is impossible for Tunisia to participate in this conference," the Tunisian Foreign Ministry explained in its statement.
