Tunisian Premier: Relations with Saudi Arabia Cornerstone for Tunisian Foreign Policy.

Riyadh, Rabi'I 27, 1433, February 19, 2012, SPA -- Tunisian Premier Hamadi Al-Jebali has described the relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a cornerstone for the Tunisian foreign policy, saying that "we won't sacrifice these relations for sake of any other issue" whatever it is.

In a press conference following his meeting with Saudi and Tunisian businessmen at Council of Saudi Chambers here today, Al-Jebali said that the reasons which standed behind the weakness of trade exchange between Saudi Arabia and Tunisia in the last decade was due to structural reasons of the Tunisian economy and legislations.

The Premier of Tunis also said that his country is hopeful to get financial assistance from the Arab side, particularly the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
