TUNIS, January 17. ITAR-TASS/. Tunisia is interested in developing cooperation with Russia in the area of passenger air service, Russian Ambassador to Tunisia Alexander Shein told Itar-Tass on Friday.
According to Shein, it was said by the Tunisian Foreign Minister Othman Jerandi. “At a meeting with Othman Jerandi, we discussed various aspects of further development of mutually beneficial Russian-Tunisian cooperation,” he said. “A key area of such cooperation in the recent years has been growing tourist flow from Russia to Tunisia, which is seen by the Tunisian authorities as a considerable contribution of our country in the revival of the Tunisian economy, which is a vital factor of further democratic reforms.”
The Russian diplomat noted he shared such approaches and thought it necessary to encourage the activities of Russian travel operator on the Tunisian market. “It is applicable to air service between the two countries,” he noted. “The situation in the sphere of tourism depends on their coordinated work.”
“In this context, the Tunisian side put forth an initiative to organize negotiations between representatives from air transport authorities of the two countries in Moscow. I think this proposal is expedient,” Shein stressed.
Some 300,000 Russian tourists visited Tunisia in 2013, which was by 50,000 more than in 2012 and twice as many as in 2011.
