This week, the French Interior Minister is heading to Tunisia to discuss the terrorism file, after the Nice attack, which was suspected of being a Tunisian perpetrator.
A visit came at the request of French President Emmanuel Macron to his Interior Minister Gerald Darmanan, according to what was announced by the Elysee.
It also comes after a phone call between Tunisian President Kais Said and his French counterpart, in which the former expressed solidarity with France in the face of the recent attacks.
According to what the French presidency made clear, the two presidents agreed to enhance cooperation in the fight against terrorism, and they also discussed “the return of Tunisians who are obligated to leave French territory, especially those on the security list” of the intelligence services.
And last Friday, three people were killed in an attack on a church, in the French city of Nice, carried out by a young man suspected of being a Tunisian who came to France through illegal immigration.
