Tunisia: Secretary General confirms Council of Europe commitment to reinforced political dialogue

Council of Europe Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić met with Mr Mokhtar Hammami, Minister of Local Affairs and Environment of Tunisia today, underlining the increasing political dialogue between Tunisia and the Council of Europe. She welcomed cooperation on democratic reforms, notably Tunisia’s request for accession to GRECO (the Group of States against Corruption) and its participation in the Venice Commission (the European Commission for Democracy through Law).

Secretary General Pejčinović Burić praised Tunisia’s accession of the Council of Europe’s Lanzarote Convention (the Convention on the Protection of children from Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse) and encouraged the country to also adopt the Istanbul Convention (the Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence). The meeting took place in the context of Tunisia’s participation in this week’s session of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities.
