"By signing this memorandum of understanding we are making clear America’s commitment to support Tunisia’s democratic transition, and that backing is not solely in words. This document reflects the breadth and the depth of the commitment that we are making. Our cooperation and our assistance will cover a wide range of programs and areas of regional economic development, of security, people-to-people ties. And the provisions of this memorandum will also strengthen respect for rule of law and build capacity for rule of law, human rights, and social and political inclusion; and it will bolster a country leadership team that has really been steadfast in its support of Tunisia’s remarkable democratic progress."
