Libya, Tunisia to restore normal relations at all levels

Tunisia on Wednesday reiterated full support for Libya’s democratic process and vowed to bolster bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

President Kais Saied landed in the capital’s Mitiga International Airport and was received by Mohammad Younes Menfi, head of Libya’s Presidency Council. They then headed for talks and the Tunisian leader also met  Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, leader of the new Government of National Unity (GNU).

“We will work together to restore normal relations at all levels,” Menfi said at a brief news conference with Saied.

Saied’s office said the talks focused on the economy and trade between the two nations, along with Tunisia’s support for a democratic path in Libya. “It’s time to overcome all causes of estrangement,” Saied said, without elaborating.

In a joint press conference, the Tunisian presidency said that the two countries have agreed on reactivating high level committees, chambers of commerce and bilateral agreements.

They further stressed their “determination to facilitate the movement of people and merchandise across borders”.

“They also emphasized the need to reactivate the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) at the level of foreign ministers and heads of state so as to serve the interests of Maghrebi peoples”.

Saied said he also discussed the case of two Tunisian journalists — Sofiene Chourabi and Nadhir Guetari — who disappeared in eastern Libya in 2014.
