TUNIS – Tunisia’s President Kais Saied on Thursday ordered the border with Libya, which had been closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, to reopen on Friday after meetings between health teams from the two countries, his office said on Twitter.

The decision to reopen the border follows a visit last week by Libya’s interim Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibeh to Tunis after growing friction over the border and other issues.
