Alistair Burt: “we want to see more people from UK visit Tunisia and enjoy all the things it has to offer”

British Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt, on Thursday, invited the British people to visit Tunisia and enjoy all that Tunisia offers to its visitors.

“We want to see more people from the United Kingdom to visit Tunisia and enjoy all that Tunisia offers to its visitors,” Alistair Burt said at the end of his meeting with Foreign Minister KhemaA�es Jhinaoui.

While welcoming the lifting by the United Kingdom of restrictions on travel to Tunisia, Burt said “this decision is the result of the hard and patient work which is undertaken by the government of Tunisia, by the security forces, working in co-operation with the United Kingdom to ensure the security of citizens who came here from all over the world.

“It is not a political decision, but a strictly security decision,” he said.

“The United Kingdom is firmly committed to supporting Tunisia and backing its reforms to boost its economy,” he said.

In the same context, Burt announced that the UK and Tunisia will soon sign a Memorandum of Understanding on anti-corruption, stating that the UK has effective technical means in this area.

At the end of the meeting, Foreign Minister KhemaA�es Jhinaoui welcomed the British decision to lift restrictions on travel to Tunisia.

“This decision can only encourage other countries, such as the Netherlands, to follow in the footsteps of the United Kingdom, he hoped, noting that “Tunisia is gradually regaining the tourist flow of the pre-2015 period “.

Jhinaoui said the meeting focused on the development of the security co-operation. “The United Kingdom has supported Tunisia in the development of several security centres and in the development of the technical capacities of the police,” he said.

The meeting also discussed ways to expand bilateral cooperation in several sectors, particularly in the economic field.

It also made it possible to take stock of the situation of the situation in North Africa and the Middle East, particularly in Libya, the FM added.

In this regard, he stressed the imperative need to support the Libyan people in their crisis.

British Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt, on Wednesday, began a two-day visit to Tunisia.

This is the first ministerial visit to Tunisia since the UK changed its travel advice last week, according to a statement by the Embassy.

During the visit, the British minister should have meetings with officials of the Tunisian government to discuss ways to strengthen ties, particularly in areas of security and fight against terrorism.

A string of talks will also focus on initiatives launched by the UK to support Tunisia in such vital fields as economic and security overhaul, tourism and trade.
