Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly arrived in Tunisia yesterday to attend an Egyptian-Tunisian Higher Committee meeting on boosting bilateral cooperation.

The Tunisian presidency said in a statement that Madbouly had arrived on his first two-day visit since his appointment in June 2018.

The statement added that the visit had come "to discuss the work of the 17th session of the Tunisian-Egyptian Joint Higher Committee."

During his first day, Madbouly was reported to have met with his counterpart, Najla Bouden.
