Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on Tuesday assured his Tunisian counterpart, Kais Saied, that Cairo supports the steps he has taken to maintain stability in Tunisia, Anadolu reported.

The presidency said in a statement that Al-Sisi spoke on the phone with Saied and congratulated him on the formation of the new government and its taking of the constitutional oath.

According to the statement, Saied expressed his keenness "to strengthen bilateral cooperation frameworks, and appreciation for Egypt's efforts in support of the Tunisian issue" as well as "Egypt's vital role in strengthening the mechanisms of joint Arab and African action in facing the current regional challenges."

In turn, the Tunisian presidency said in a statement that the two sides affirmed their "steadfast determination to continue working together to further consolidate the strong and historical brotherly ties that unite the two brotherly countries and peoples."

Earlier on Monday, the new head of the Tunisian government, Najla Bouden Romdhane, and members of her cabinet were sworn in before the President of the Republic Kais Saied, in a ceremony held at Carthage Palace.
