U.S. President Barack Obama said on Thursday that he plans to designate Tunisia as a major non-NATO ally of the United States, recognizing the country's democratic progress after the 2011 Arab Spring uprising.
After a meeting with Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi, where the leaders discussed instability in Libya and the region, Obama said the United States will provide short-term aid so Tunisia can complete economic reforms.
