Jordan’s Prime Minister Hani Mulki on Thursday delivered a letter from King Abdullah to Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi, focused on issues related to the bilateral ties and ways to further develop them in several fields, Jordan Times reported.

The premier was in Tunis to co-chair the Jordanian-Tunisian Joint Higher Committee meetings with his Tunisian counterpart Youssef Chahed, which concluded later in the day.

In a statement delivered upon his arrival in Tunis, Mulki said he was pleased with the visit, noting that both countries have many opportunities to increase mutual cooperation, particularly in the economic sphere.

He also noted that the two countries’ cooperation in the reconstruction of Iraq, and soon in Syria, will be of mutual benefit.

The prime minister described the "deep-rooted" Jordanian-Tunisian relations, expressing his confidence that the cooperation of the Arab nation and the implementation of agreements signed between its countries.

According to Tunisian news, Tunisia and Jordan signed eleven co-operation agreements in the fields of economy, culture and higher education, at the close of the meetings.
