TUNIS (Reuters) – Tunisia’s President Kais Saied said in a video released by his office on Sunday that there were contacts with “friendly countries” to reduce the country’s financial deficit, without giving details.
Both Tunisia’s budget deficit and national debt rose sharply last year as a result of the pandemic, and the government is negotiating a loan agreement with the International Monetary Fund.
