Foreign Minister Noureddine Erray, on Tuesday, met with Clarke Cooper, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs, at the department's headquarters in Tunis.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs  said the meeting  made it possible to highlight the need to further enrich and strengthen the relations of cooperation and strategic partnership established with the United States in all fields.

This partnership should include other sectors of priority for Tunisia, such as military cooperation, border security, development in interior regions, information technology, scientific research and culture, he pointed out.

The Minister also recalled the "positive outcome” of the 3rd Session of the Tunisian-U.S. Joint Economic Commission held on February 7 in Tunisia.

In this regard, he expressed "the commitment of the two friendly countries to pursue coordination and collaboration in the United Nations Security Council on various regional and international issues"; Tunisia being a non-permanent member of the council for the period 2020-2021.

"The Tunisia-US friendship relations that date back more than 200 years have also been at the heart of the talks," he said, noting Tunisia's recognition of the continued support provided by the United States since 2011 to help it meet economic, security and development challenges.

For his part, Clarke Cooper expressed his country's respect for the steps taken by Tunisia in terms of political transition and security, stressing the US commitment to continue to support it in its process of building democratic institutions.

On another level, he expressed his country's determination to do everything possible, together with Tunisia, to find a political solution for Libya.
