MEPs agree on the opening of FTA negotiations with Tunisia

Members of the European Parliament have given their consent on 25 February 2016 to the launch of free trade negotiations with Tunisia. The first round of negotiations has been scheduled in the week of 18th of April in Tunis. However, not all MEPs were supportive of the opening of the negotiations. An editorial in the French Huffington Post co-signed by several French MEPs criticises the European Commission for putting the economic interest of the EU first instead of focusing on development aid to support the Tunisian democracy.
