French, Tunisian heads of state meet in Paris

, , ,

Tunisian President Kais Saied is meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Monday evening for discussions that are set to include conflict-torn Libya and the economic impact of the coronavirus crisis.
On his first trip to Europe since he was elected in October last year, Saied is also the first head of state to visit France since the lockdown of the country amid the pandemic. Virus restrictions enforced in France in mid-March have almost all been lifted in recent weeks.
Tunisia has strong political and economic ties with France, its former colonial power.
Libya is set to be on top of the agenda, Macron’s office said.
