Last year Tunisia and NATO approved an Individual Partnership and Cooperation Programme focused on several priority areas, including political dialogue, cooperation in the fight against terrorism, border security, cyber defence, defence planning and management and science cooperation. The meeting was an opportunity to discuss how to further develop the partnership between NATO and Tunisia in areas of mutual interest, including counter-terrorism and military education and training.

Tunisia is a long standing NATO partner and joined the NATO Mediterranean Dialogue in 1994. NATO vessels have conducted regular port visits to Tunisia in recent years. During several of these visits joint exercises were conducted by the Tunisian Navy and naval assets from NATO countries.
