    BRUSSELS - A statement from EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell on Tuesday said the European Union is "monitoring the developments in Tunisia with great attention".

    "The country's democratic roots, the respect for the rule of law, the Constitution and the legislative framework must be preserved, remaining attentive to the desires and the aspirations of the Tunisian people," Borrell said.

    "We call for the restoration of institutional stability as soon as possible, and in particular for the resumption of parliamentary activity, respect for fundamental rights and an abstention from all forms of violence," he said.

    "The safeguarding of democracy and the stability of the country are the priorities".
