ANKARA, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Tunisian Foreign Minister Rafik Abdessalem said Tuesday that Tunisia was ready to cooperate with Turkey in all fields and to increase their mutual trade volume.

Abdessalem made the remarks at a joint press conference with Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in the capital Ankara, saying that it was his first official trip overseas after assuming duties as the foreign minister of Tunisia.

Tunisia and Turkey can cooperate in various fields and build a bright future together as the two countries have deep rooted historical ties, said Abdessalem.

The two countries can cooperate in diverse fields, such as industry, infrastructure, service sector and tourism, Abdessalem said, adding that Tunisia is able to establish political stability and is an attractive location for investors.

Considering Turkey as a rapidly growing regional power, Abdessalem said that Turkey attracts not only Tunisians but the whole region.

For his part, Davutoglu said Abdessalem's visit carries symbolic importance as it is his first official trip overseas, and that they discussed bilateral relations and regional issues during their official talks.
