During a cordial meeting at the Palace of Carthage, the President of the European Commission, Jeam-Claude Juncker, met the President of Tunisia Caid Essebsi.
In this meeting, President Juncker announced that the Commission had withdrawn Tunisia from the "black lists" of third countries for funding terrorist groups.
On this occasion, it confirmed the granting of a loan to Tunisia by the EU for 270 million euro to strengthen the strategic partnership.
