The EU and Tunisia held on Thursday their second high-level political dialogue. Participants shared their respective analyses of the transnational threat posed by terrorism and their responses, provided an update on existing cooperation in the security field and the fight against terrorism, and discussed how to implement the many actions already undertaken to respond to the challenges posed by terrorism and radicalisation.
The two sides also welcomed the organisation of the tripartite consultation meeting with civil society representatives held in Tunis on 13 January 2017, as agreed at the first dialogue meeting in September 2015.
The EU pledges to continue to strongly support the Tunisian authorities in the fight against terrorism. On the basis of the proposals of the EU High Representative, the Joint Communication “Strengthening support to Tunisia”, the Conclusions of the External Affairs Council of 17 October 2016 and in connection with the multilateral work of the G7+6 mechanism in Tunis coordinated by the EU Delegation in Tunisia, the EU managed to intensify its cooperation with Tunisia.
