TUNIS (Reuters) - The European Union disbursed on Monday 150 million euros to Tunisia as budget support for financial stability and economic reforms, the European Commission said, as the North Africa country faces financial crisis.

"The EU continues its commitment alongside Tunisia ... This is an important step as part of our agreement concluded last year and a good progress in our partnership.", the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said.
