    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, FEBRUARY 4 - Prior to planning any foreign intervention in Libya, it is necessary to ''take into consideration the interests of neighboring countries and especially Tunisia'', Tunisian president Beji Caid Essebsi said Thursday. The remark came during a meeting with diplomatic missions and international organizations accredited in Tunis. President Essebsi underscored the repercussions of the Libyan conflict on Tunisia's security and stability, expressing his confidence in Libyans' ability to deal with internal divergences without foreign interference. The head of state called on the international community to help Libyans achieve ''full reconciliation'' to conclude the political transition process and to begin to rebuild for a ''better future for Libya and the region in general''.

    ''It is in the interests of Tunisia, the region and the world,'' he concluded, ''that Libya be united and stable''.
