"We have met with our brothers in Tunisia about security information that has imposed specific and circumstantial measures", he said.

Emirates has given no reason for not allowing female Tunisians to board its flights since Friday.

But Tunisian official Garrach insisted that while his country could understand the UAE's concerns, it cannot "accept the way Tunisian women have been treated".

The transport ministry said in a statement on its Facebook page that it "has made a decision to suspend flights of Emirates Airlines to and from Tunisia until the company can find a suitable solution to operate its flights in accordance with worldwide laws and treaties".

While the UAE said that "security information" had caused the original delays, and that the temporary ban had already been lifted, Tunisia's transport ministry said that the landing-ban would stay in place until the UAE was able to "operate flights in accordance with law and global agreements".

Foreign Minister Khemais Jhianoui told a local radio station the UAE should apologize for the travel ban, which he said its authorities had not informed Tunisia about.

Tunisian media had reported that some Tunisian women were barred from boarding flights to Dubai.

"So the daughter and the mum stay in Tunisia but the husband and son can travel".

Tunisia has been making an effort to fix the otherwise strained diplomatic ties with the UAE. "It's degrading to the Tunisian woman, to our nationality - to everything".

The barring of Tunisian women has caused anger among rights groups and political parties in Tunisia.
