Tunis — “Tunisia and Iran are seeking to further expand relations,” Iranian Vice-President Masoud Solatnifar said Saturday.

In a statement to reporters at the end of a meeting with Prime Minister Habib Essid, he affirmed “we have no limits in developing our relations with Tunisia.”

He suggested to Essid to provide all facilitations to remove the visa-system between the two countries to boost tourism.

Soltanifar, who is Iranian cultural heritage, handicrafts and tourism organisation chief, pointed out that there are similarities between Tunisia and Iran, especially in the cultural and historical fields.

The Iranian official, who is visiting Tunisia at the invitation of the tourism ministry, reminded of “the bilateral executive agreement to develop the tourist sector,” signed December 11 in Tunis, under which Tunisia plans to attract 10,000 Iranian tourists.
