Tunisia Calls for Security Partnerships

Algeria and Tunisia will co-operate in the field of security, AFP quoted Tunisian Foreign Minister Rafik Abdessalem as saying Monday (December 3rd) in Algiers.

Algeria and Tunisia "share the same vision for security risks, particularly with regard to the situation in the Sahel and in Mali", Abdessalem said during a joint press conference with his Algerian counterpart Mourad Medelci.

The two countries agreed "to co-operate in the fields of security and information exchange, to cope with threats, especially from terrorist groups ", he said.

"Without security and stability, there can be no economic or social development, or even democracy," the Tunisian foreign minister added.
