Tunisia's interim government named Mouldi Kefi as the country's new foreign minister, reported the official press agency TAP on Monday.

Following his appointment, the minister took the oath before the country's interim President Fouad Mebazaa.

The 65-year-old new minister is a career diplomat who served as Tunisia's ambassador respectively in Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Indonesia.

His predecessor, Ahmed Ounaies, 75, resigned in mid-February.
