Tunisian envoy says ‘peace oil’ at G7

Attendees at the Group of Seven summit in Taormina at the end of May will receive from Tunisian authorities a ‘peace oil’ made from olives from Tunisia, Italy, Spain and Greece with the aim of representing solidarity and closeness among the countries of the Mediterranean.
“It is normal that they may be points of disagreement between neighbouring countries, as on the issue of Tunisian olives” bought by Italian producers,” said Tunisian Ambassador to Rome Moez Sinaoui.
“But it is also normal that when olive trees became diseased in Italy, Italian private businessmen turned to the Tunisian market.
“It’s not our fault, it was the Romans who planted them hundreds of years ago,” Sinaoui said.
