There are many interest areas with special cooperation potential," Comanescu told a joint press conference with his Tunisian counterpart Khemaies Jhinaoui.

According to the Romanian diplomacy head, it was agreed that there is a special cooperation potential in the economy area, but also in respect to the experience exchange in building democratic societies.

"I voiced the Romanian side's availability to share its experience in terms of democratic institutions" consolidation, justice reform. (...) Tunisia, through the efforts made on the path of building a democratic society, deserves the entire appreciation. At present, when we look at the transformations taking place in the EU vicinity, I believe the transformations taking place in Tunisia deserve all the appreciation," Comanescu also said.
