Baku-APA. Turkey and Tunisia signed an agreement on Tuesday to establish a high level strategic cooperation council, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and visiting Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali inked the deal in Turkey's capital of Ankara, hoping to boost relations between the two countries.

Following the signing ceremony, Erdogan said the council would hold its first meeting in Tunisia in March 2013.

"Turkey with its people has stood by Tunisia and its people on their democracy struggle, and will continue to stand by them... We are going to support the democratic transformation and efforts of economic development in Tunisia," Erdogan said.

Jebali, on his part, said the countries' bilateral relations were growing at a pace never seen before in their history.

"We should make efforts not only for Turkey-Tunisia relations, but also for Turkey-Arab world relations. We should establish a power of balance, a new civilization terminal," said Jebali.
