ABSTRACT
Tunisian President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali's reception at U.S. White House in February 2004, reinforced the close ties established with Washington in recent years. Now the challenge facing the Tunisian leader as he prepares to convene the Arab League Summit in Tunis, Tunisia in late March is to capitalise on this influence without being labelled a stooge of the U.S. It is believed that Ben Ali's renewed sense of confidence will start to make itself felt in a greater willingness to engage in regional diplomacy.
