President Saied received a telephone call on Sunday night from French President Macron, who informed Saied of his understanding of the fact that Tunisia had not participated in the conference of Berlin, said Tunisian presidency in a statement on Monday.

The two presidents insisted on the need of Tunisia's participation in any upcoming initiative.

"Due to its geographical closeness to Libya, Tunisia is the most affected country by the situation prevailing today in Libya," the presidency quoted Saied as saying.

Tunisia on Friday received an official invitation from German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the Berlin Conference on Libya.

On Saturday, Tunisia announced its decision not to participate in the conference as it did not participate in the preliminary process that started last September.
