US hopes 'Tunisian example' will bring Arab reform


The United States is hoping that the "example" of the Tunisian uprising will bring reform to other parts of the region, the top-ranking US envoy for the Middle East said on a visit to Tunis on Tuesday.

"I certainly expect that we'll be using the Tunisian example" in talks with other Arab governments, Jeffrey Feltman told reporters in Tunis.

"The challenges being faced in many parts of the world, particularly in the Arab world, are the same and we hope people will be addressing legitmate political, social, economic grievances," he said.
