Tunisian president meets new Libyan unity government

Tunisia and Libya were major trade partners before the political transitions in both countries during the Arab Spring. Tunisia was neutral during the Libyan civil war that ended in December.

Tunisia’s president flew to Libya on Wednesday to meet with the neighboring country’s new unity government.

Kais Saied met with Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah as well as head of Libya’s Presidential Council Mohammad Younes Menfi in Tripoli. The discussions focused on restoring Tunisia-Libya relations to normal following years of civil war in Libya, The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
