U.S. backs $500 mln in loan guarantees for Tunisia

WASHINGTON, April 4 (Reuters) - The United States on Friday said it would provide a new loan guarantee for Tunisia worth about $500 million as part of a continuing effort to help the North African nation recover following its 2011 uprising.

President Barack Obama, speaking ahead of a meeting with Tunisian Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa at the White House, said the loan guarantees would help Tunisia’s economy “begin to move forward.” (Reporting by Susan Heavey; Editing by Sandra Maler)
