The UK is working closely with the Tunisian government and international partners to strengthen Tunisia’s border with Libya. We are planning to deliver border security training to Tunisian Forces on the Libyan border later this year. We have also funded community engagement programmes to improve the Tunisian security forces’ engagement with border communities to help reduce illegal border crossings. The UK is working with the Tunisians and international partners on what more we can do to support Tunisia in the aftermath of the Sousse attack.
