First Media Roundtable with Ambassador Daniel H. Rubinstein
Good morning. Thank you all for coming today. I look forward to getting to know all of you in the weeks and months ahead. Today marks two weeks since my arrival in Tunis. I am grateful for the warm welcome I have received and honored to be here as the U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia at this key moment in our relationship. And you should have no doubt about how important the relationship between our two countries is.
It is a relationship based on broad and deep cooperation in three main areas: security, economic development, and people-to-people partnerships. We have made great progress in each of these areas, but much remains to be done. That is why I am pleased that a number of senior officials from the United States government will be coming to Tunis next week to engage in the second U.S.-Tunisia Strategic Dialogue on November 13. We look forward to engaging with our partners in the Tunisian government to bring our historic relationship to a new level.
With that, I am prepared to take your questions.
