The European Union has agreed to help the Tunisian government fight Islamic extremism in the North African country.
EU foreign ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday agreed to several cooperative measures with Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid. The agreement follows last month’s beach resort attack in Tunisia that left 38 tourists dead, many EU nationals.
“We have to keep hope alive in a region that faces so many difficulties,” said EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who also said it’s in Europeans’ own interest to assist Tunisia.
