President Iohannis: Romania is fully supporting democratic transition in Tunisia

Romania's President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday welcomed Tunisia's Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui to voice Romania's full support for democratic transition in Tunisia, the Presidential Administration informed in a press statement on Thursday.

In their conversation, Iohannis and Jhinaoui also discussed consolidating the Romanian-Tunisian bilateral economic and political ties and intensifying ties between the European Union and Tunisia, as well as security affairs in the EU's southern neighbourhood.

"Hailing the excellent level of the bilateral ties, buttressed by a tradition of cooperation of more than 50 years, President Klaus Iohannis and Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui agreed on an intensification of the bilateral political dialogue, while underscoring the need for diversified economic cooperation that will reflect the real potentials of the two economies," the statement reads.

The Tunisian foreign minister extended thanks to Romania for its traditional support to Tunisia, which is reflected also in a high number of Tunisian students having studied or still studying in Romania.

As far as the relationship between Tunisia and the European Union is concerned, Iohannis hailed Tunisia's progress with deepening cooperation with the EU, assuring the minister of Romania's full support for the process.

The two officials also looked at the latest security developments in the European Union's southern neighbourhood, with emphasis on the current situation in Libya and Syria and the joint effort against terrorism.

Jhinaoui was on an official visit to Bucharest.
