Tunis, 11 May 2016:
Presidency Council head Faiez Serraj has had talks in Tunis today with the Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi. According to a statement from the Council, the talks covered economic and security cooperation, in particular the fight against the so-called Islamic State (IS). Transport links were also discussed, the both sides agreeing to set up a joint committee to deal with them.
The Ras Jedir border crossing is partly closed, with guards from Zuwara on the Libyan side refusing to allow merchants from the Tunisian border town of Ben Guerdane to use it. Libyan plans are also still barred from landing at Tunis Carthage Airport although Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid told Serraj that the airport ban which began in December would be lifted at the end of this month.
According to a Presidency Council statement, Essebsi confirmed this.
It also said that Serraj briefed Essebsi on all the developments in Libya, and that both looked at further developing economic and commercial links between the two countries.
Serraj was accompanied by Presidency Council Member Fathi Majbri and his political adviser Taher El-Sonni. [/restrict]
