Tunisian Prime Minister Najla Bouden Romdhane met here on Wednesday with her Libyan counterpart Abdul-Hamed Dbeibah to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral ties, according to a statement issued by the Tunisian government.
During the meeting, Bouden Romdhane reiterated Tunisia’s firm support for the Libyan people to find a sustainable settlement in the war-torn country in order to restore security and stability.
The meeting is an occasion to further strengthen “solidarity and cooperation” between the two countries, since the situations in the region and on the world stage call for rapprochement and cooperation, he said.
