Tunisia ready for more Turkish investors, FM says
Turkish companies have significantly contributed to Tunisia’s development, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said while on a trip here Monday.
Cavusoglu’s counterpart, Khemaies Jhinaoui, said his country is ready to welcome Turkish investors.
"I especially thank the Tunisian government and the state for their support and support to the Turkish companies,” Cavusoglu said at a joint news conference following a meeting with Jhinaoui in which he said Libya was discussed.
"Tunisia and Turkey have no secret agenda in Libya. We are stepping in and supporting Libya's stability and unity,” he said.
"Despite all the difficulties, we really thank the Tunisian government for keeping the Libyan border open. We will act together in regional issues, especially in Libya,” Cavusoglu added.
Jhinaoui stressed the importance of calling the parties in Libya to peaceful meetings, adding that Turkey and Tunisia have been in the area for some time and "decided to exchange opinions”.
Cavusoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli are in Tunisia to attend the Nov. 29-30 International Conference on Economic Support and Investment where they will seek new investment opportunities in Turkey.
