Jhinaoui calls on Poland to revise its travel instructions to Tunisia

Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui urged his Polish counterpart Witold Waszczykowski to revise travel instructions to Tunisia.

On a three-day official visit to Tunisia, the head of Polish diplomacy had on Monday a meeting with Jhinaoui.

“The number of Polish tourists to Tunisia in 2010 stood at 216,000. This number has not exceeded 16,000 this year,” said Jhinaoui.

It is worth pointing out that Poland eased its travel restrictions last August to Tunisia.

In a statement to the media, Khemaies Jhinaoui pointed out that they had discussed during the meeting the relations of co-operation and friendship binding Tunisia and Poland and the upcoming bilateral events.

In this regard, he stressed the importance of developing bilateral co-operation and identifying ways to diversify it in the two countries’ interests.

Bilateral co-operation in matters of economic investment was also reviewed during the talk, he added, highlighting the impact of major reforms in this field, notably the adoption of the new Code of Investment and the development of the activities of Polish enterprises set up in Tunisia.

At the cultural level, a joint commission will convene soon to discuss ways of boosting bilateral co-operation in this field, the FM underlined, adding that the development of youth competence had also been at the centre of their talk.

The Libyan crisis had been discussed during the meeting, said Khemaies Jhinaoui, considering that Poland being a member of the United Nations Security Council could intervene to help Libya overcome its crisis.

In the same vein, he welcomed Poland’s willingness to reinforce Tunisia’s presence in the European space. “As a member of the EU, Poland could also help Tunisia strengthen its representativeness in the region’s institutions and on the different European markets,” Jhinaoui concluded.

For his part, the head of Polish diplomacy indicated that Tunisia is for Poland a key partner in the North African region politically and economically.

“We want to develop our co-operation with Tunisia and we are here today to examine the potential for co-operation between the two countries,” he said.

“My visit today is a proof that Poland is open to co-operation with Tunisia in spite of the problems facing some European countries,” the Polish minister added.
