Tunisia, France to cooperate on stopping jihadists
The measures will include strengthening border controls and increasing police and intelligence cooperation
France’s interior minister says his country will work with Tunisia to stop their nationals from traveling to fight in Syria and Iraq.
Bernard Cazeneuve announced new measures late Monday during a 24-hour visit to Tunisia that included meetings with Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa and Cazeneuve’s counterpart Lotfi Ben Jeddou.
More than 2,400 Tunisians have traveled to fight with the extremist Islamic State group, the most of any country, while hundreds of French have made the journey, the most of any European country.
The measures will include strengthening border controls and increasing police and intelligence cooperation between the two countries, Cazeneuve said.
He added that he also discussed fighting cybercrime and illegal immigration.
