Tunisian-Portuguese cooperation, reviewed

Fostering the Tunisian-Portuguese relations at the bilateral level but also within the framework of the European Union institutions, was the focus of the meeting that Foreign Minister Noureddine Erray had on Tuesday with Portuguese Ambassador to Tunisia José Frederico Ludovice

The meeting also focused on ways to step up consultations between the two parties on "issues of mutual interest,"

Noureddine Erray commended on this occasion the friendly and cooperation relations binding the two countries, pointing out willingness to foster bilateral cooperation in all fields, notably through the exchange of visits, revival of tourist activities and the intensification of meetings between the two countries' trade delegations.

He expressed thanks to Portugal for its support and cooperation in facilitating the return of Tunisians stranded in that country following the coronavirus pandemic.

In this regard, the Minister recalled the tenor of the phone conversation held on April 22 between President Kais Saied and his Portuguese counterpart Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, during which emphasis had been laid on the importance of reinforcing international solidarity to alleviate the consequences of the pandemic.

For his part, the Portuguese diplomat underlined the close relations between the two countries and the willingness to strengthen them at the economic, social and cultural levels.
