Head of State instructs Ministry of Foreign Affairs to inform the European side to postpone visiting Tunisia

President Kaïs Saied decided, during the meeting of the National Security Council held at the Carthage Palace, to instruct the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Migration and Tunisians Abroad to inform the European side of the “decision to postpone the visit that a delegation from the European Commission had planned to make to Tunisia to a later date to be agreed between the two sides,” the Presidency of the Republic announced in a brief statement issued on Monday evening.

Last Friday, the European Commission announced a pound 60 million budget support package for Tunisia and a pound 67 million operational support package for migration, both of which will now be disbursed in the coming days and rapidly contracted and delivered.

Last week, the Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, Oliver Varhelyi, and the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Nabil Ammar, spoke over the phone to confirm their shared desire to strengthen the Tunisian-European partnership and to speed up efforts to implement the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Tunisia and the European Union last July in various areas.
