Tunisia’s government held talks with an International Monetary Fund delegation as the North African nation seeks support for its troubled economy.

Prime Minister Najla Bouden appraised President Kais Saied of her meeting with IMF representatives, his office said Saturday on Twitter. The president stressed that “proposed solutions need to meet the demands of the people and that the social role of the state should not be undermined.”
