In November, Iranian Minister of Economy Ali Tayyebnia and Tunisian President Moncef Marzouqi, in a meeting on the sidelines of the third Arab-Afro Summit in Kuwait, expressed the hope that the mutual cooperation between the two friendly nations would increase in various fields.

They regretted that trade between Iran and Tunisia failed to keep up with the extensive capacities of both countries, calling for a joint specialized economic committee to be set up to help boost economic cooperation.

In October, Tunisian Transport Minister Abdelkarim Al-Harouni and Iran’s Ambassador to Tunisia Peyman Jebelli expressed hope that the relations between the two Muslim countries would witness further expansion in all fields, particularly in the transportation sector.

During the meeting in Tunis, Al-Harouni voiced his country’s readiness to cooperate with Iranian private and state companies in the fields of air, sea and land transportation.
