Relations between Nigeria, Tunisia on the mend
Tunisian Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa was in Algeria for a two day visit. The official visit was intended to strengthen relations between both Algeria and Tunisia, working on shared economic ties and to provide a united response to terrorist groups in the region.
President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika received Sunday in Algiers the head of the Tunisian government, Mehdi Jomaa. The two sides reviewed political and security issues of interest as well as economic cooperation between the two parts. Three financial cooperation agreements were signed in Algiers.
ALGIERS, ALGERIA (Catholic Online) - A series of practical steps have also been undertaken during the state visit to facilitate the flow of Algerian tourists into Tunisia. The two sides are striving to attain better reconciliation between the two populations. The visit was used as an occasion to reinforce bilateral cooperation in terms of security and economy between Algeria and Tunisia.
Both governments share a commitment to a build new model of cooperation in order to benefit both nations' populations. Algeria and Tunisia took the occasion to reiterate their pledge to exchange information in regards to terrorist movements in the borders these two countries share.
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."
