Libya and Tunisia have agreed on a new plan regarding the free trade border zone, in terms of assigning a consulting office to prepare and design its commercial space.

The agreement came during a meeting between the Minister of Transport, Mohammed Al-Shahoubi, and the Tunisian Ambassador to Libya, Al-Asaad Al-Ajili, to discuss preparations for holding meetings of the Libyan-Tunisian Supreme Committee as soon as possible, and opening a sea line between the ports of Tripoli and Misrata with the port of Sfax.

The meeting touched on the debts owed by the Libyan state, the issue of similarity of names at the borders, in addition to the provision of weapons and metal detectors at the border gates to reduce overcrowding.
