(SBU) Aside from an expression of sympathy and condolence
from President Ben Ali (ref C), there has been no reporting
in the Tunisian media of material assistance from the GOT to
the international relief efforts in Haiti. Mourad Belhassan,
Deputy Director of the Americas Desk at the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, told us on January 20 that he was unaware of
any GOT plans to offer assistance to Haiti, although he did
not rule out the possibility.
