The Tunisian Foreign Minister Khamis Gihinawi said Saturday that he agreed with the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sirraj to organise another visit to Libyan to discuss the issue of ISIS-born Tunisian children, who are jailed with their mothers.

Gihinawi said that when his government officials visited Libya last time and wanted to check on the children in Libyan prisons, they were met with lack of action by the Libyan authorities.

Gihinawi also discussed with Al-Sirraj the issue of Libya’s debts at the hospitals and medical centers in Tunisia and how they could be paid off soon.

He also discussed the need to work on a framework for both Libyan and Tunisian authorities at the border crossings so that the in and out movement of goods can be done properly.
