he President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, on Monday said the European Union (EU) will help Tunisia deal with multiple challenges it faces.

Tajani made the remarks when addressing the deputies of Tunisian parliament. The European Parliament chief is on a two-day official visit to Tunisia, starting from Monday.

Tajani said “the stability of Europe would depend, in some ways, on the stability of Africa and the Mediterranean, including Tunisia, with which cooperation, including security, must be strengthened.”

The fight against terrorism, illegal migration and unemployment remain among the concerns shared between Tunisia and the EU, the European Parliament chief said.

Tunisia “contributes remarkably in the development of relations between Europe and Africa. We will be, therefore, alongside Tunisians to the crowning of their economic and social model,” the European Parliament chief said.

For his part, the President of Tunisian parliament, Mohamed Ennaceur, said taking up all the challenges Tunisia faces will only be possible in the condition of a fruitful cooperation and partnership in full respect of common interests.
