Japan reaffirms cooperation with Tunisia

The Japanese deputy minister for foreign affairs, Nobio Kishi, on Tuesday reaffirmed the continuing cooperation of his country with Tunisia.

Kishi, who was speaking at the end of a working session with the Tunisian Secretary of State for foreign affairs, Fayçal Gouiaa, stressed the importance of information and communication technology and the sharing of experience in scientific research and industry.

He said that his country was willing to finance two projects related to the protection of the waters at the Madjerda Basin from floods and construction of an electric power station in Radés, a suburb of the capital, Tunis.

The Japanese diplomat, who is in Tunisia as part of a North African trip, congratulated the Tunisian people after the adoption of a new Constitution, praising the consensus around the democratic process.

A communiqué released by the Tunisian foreign affairs ministry made public on Tuesday said Japan had contributed to finance 39 development projects in the sectors of infrastructure, transport, agriculture, industry and higher education.
