The health of the Tunisian president is improving, an official said Friday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

"President Baji Caid Essebsi’s health has shown remarkable improvement," presidency spokeswoman Saida Guarach said in a statement.

"The president talked with Defense Minister [Abdelkareem Zubaidi] by phone about the general situation in the country," she added.

The 92-year-old president on Thursday was taken to a military hospital in the capital Tunis, his second hospital visit in less than a week.

Essebsi, who took office in December 2014, is due to step down when his term ends this November.
