The cooperation agreement was signed by Chinese Ambassador to Tunisia Zhang Jianguo and Tunisian Minister of Foreign Affairs Othman Jerandi.
“By signing this agreement, I hope we (China and Tunisia) can very quickly target and discuss one or more projects that we will implement together for the benefit of the Tunisian people” Zhang concluded.
