The presence of Algerian jihadists linked to Al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb AQIM in the Chamba Mountains is cause for concern among the Tunisian security forces. Tunisia has called upon their Algerian counterparts to prevent these factions from aggression during tourist season. The enthronement of the Algerian terrorist Khaled Chaib as the head of Ansar Charia to Seif Allah Benhassin, also known as Abu Ayad has hastened this sudden cooperation in shared security.

Securing the common area between the two nations' borders are the stated aim of both countries.

The meeting between Algeria and Tunisia also focused on various aspects of cooperation between "the two brotherly countries," the Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ramtane Lamamra said. He added that the meeting was also an opportunity to discuss "several regional and international as well as security and stability in both countries and political issues the entire region."
