from President Ben Ali (ref C), there has been no reporting
in the Tunisian media of material assistance from the GOT to

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.
