The President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, sent the following message to the President of the Tunisian Republic, Beji Caid Essebsi:
«I would like to express, on behalf of myself and of all the Italian people, our deepest sympathy to the families of the victims of the atrociously brutal attack committed against several men of the Presidential Guard.
In firmly condemning this further barbarian act that has struck your Country, allow me to reiterate Italy's full support to Tunisia in combating terrorism and all forms of violence.
I am certain that, on the strength of your values, we will prevail over these hatemongers and those who disseminate violence and build a future of peace and stability in the Mediterranean region.
With these sentiments in mind, permit me to express to you, Mr President, and to all the Tunisian people, my deepest-felt grief together with that of all Italians».
