Mohamed Al-Menfi, the head of Libya’s Presidential Council, met with Hichem Mechichi, the Prime Minister of Tunisia, and his extended delegation of Tunisian political and economic leaders this week in Tripoli.
The meeting today, according to Al-Menfi’s information office, focused on bilateral ties and ways to improve them, emphasizing the importance of deepening political and economic cooperation between the two neighbors.
Mechichi stressed the importance of Libyan stability for Tunisian stability during a press conference with Libyan Prime Minister Abdelhamid Dabeiba: “Tunisia and Libya are connected by more than just political and economic factors. Between the two countries, there are strong humanitarian ties.” Tunisia also sees Libya as a positive factor in improving the economic environment in order to increase further investment.
He also said that Tunisia is fully prepared to study and analyze all issues between the two countries at all levels, and that Tunisia is devoting all of its resources and expertise to assisting Libyans in all areas.
Tunisia’s Prime Minister landed in Libya on a two-day official visit, accompanied by a high-level ministerial and business team, to coincide with the restart of Tunisian Airlines flights to Tripoli following a seven-year hiatus.
