    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 29 - During a recent visit to Tunis by Saudi crown prince Mohamed Bin Salman, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia clinched accords worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

    The news was given by Tunisian presidential advisor Noureddine Ben Ticha to the local radio station Jawhara FM, which said that the agreements included a 500-million-dollar loan with low interest rates to Tunisia from Saudi Arabia and 120 million dollars in project funding. The two countries will soon be discussing Saudi Investment Bank interventions in several infrastructure projects in Tunisia, Ben Ticha said, adding that ''the Saudi crown prince has clearly expressed economic support from the Kingdom to Tunisia''. There was opposition to Bin Salman's visit to Tunisia from hundreds of Tunisians who protested in the center of the capital against it. The Tunisian journalists syndicate (SNJT), many civil society associations and the Tunisian National Women's Union (UNFT) were also against the visit. (ANSAmed).
