Tunisia’s economic problems, some analysts might argue, could be resolved if it were to become a vassal of a GCC country and benefit from assistance. So far, that hasn’t happened, but the GCC bloc has moved forward with improving at least its collective relations with Tunisia, according to Saudi media.
The Secretary-General of the Cooperation Council (GCC), Jassem Mohamed Al Budaiwi, met in Tunisia on June 5th with Minister of Foreign Affairs, Migration, and Tunisians Abroad, Nabil Ammar, Saudi Gazette reports.
Reportedly, both individuals signed a Memorandum of Understanding that aims to facilitate a better GCC-Tunisian bilateral relationship, according to Middle East Monitor,
Additionally, showing that these efforts have been ongoing, Al Budaiwi shared that he has met with Tunisian President Kais Saied as well as other high-ranking officials to foster cooperation between the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and Tunisia.
Al Budaiwi emphasized that he and President Saied explored avenues to strengthen relations between the Gulf countries and Tunisia, aiming to expand the scope of collaboration on shared interests.
Furthermore, he expressed his confidence in achieving the utmost levels of cooperation, attributing this progress to the knowledge of the leaderships of both the GCC countries and Tunisia. He also expressed his desire for further advancements and resilience among them.
