TUNIS -- Tunisia's minister of economy, finance and investment called on creditor countries to consider relaxing loan terms, as the pandemic has made it difficult for debtor nations to repay loans.

Ali Kooli told Nikkei in an interview that "the Group of 20 countries' decision to support low-income countries and to try to offset part of their loans is a very good move." But he added, "we should not forget medium-income countries, such as Tunisia."
