Francois Bayrou says visit to Tunisia aims to strengthen development projects as he meets President Caid Essebsi

President Beji CaA�d Essebsi received, on Monday at the palace of Carthage, former French minister and Mayor of the city of Pau, Francois Bayrou, who is making a working visit to Tunisia.

Speaker after the meeting, Bayrou stressed that his visit to Tunisia is part of the desire to boost the democratic process and strengthen development projects in Tunisia.

According to a statement by the Presidency of the Republic, Francois Bayrou is expected to sign a partnership agreement providing for the construction of a hospital in the city of Gafsa.

The project is part of the implementation of an agreement between the Tunisian and French authorities for the conversion of Tunisian debts into development projects in several regions of the country.

During this meeting, Bayrou commended the Tunisian democratic experience, saying it represents a leading experience in the region.

The French official said he had discussed with CaA�d Essebsi a number of issues of common interest, including developments in the situation in Libya and ways of achieving a comprehensive political settlement of this crisis.

While commending the development of Tunisian-French co-operation in all fields, the President of the Republic welcomed all projects that are likely to strengthen decentralised co-operation between the two countries, in the field of social services, given its direct impact on the daily lives of citizens, particularly in the interior regions of the country.
