Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui met with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on 16 May at NATO Headquarters where they shared views on the Tunisia-NATO partnership and the commitment of both sides to cooperate.

They also discussed the current regional security situation related to developments in Libya, and reaffirmed that a cooperative approach is key to address common security challenges.

This was Jhinaoui’s second meeting with Stoltenberg at NATO Headquarters and took place after a recent meeting held in Turkey by the North Atlantic Council with the seven members of the NATO Mediterranean Dialogue.

NATO’s Mediterranean Dialogue was initiated in 1994 by the North Atlantic Council. It currently involves seven non-NATO countries of the Mediterranean region: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia.
