4. The officials of either contracting party may, with the agreement of the other party and under the conditions it sets, be present in the territory of that party for reasons of reflection. Relations between Tunisia and the European Union make their decisions in agreement between the parties. These decisions are binding on the contracting parties who take the necessary steps to implement the decisions taken. establish an appropriate framework for political dialogue between the parties, which allows for the development of close relations in all areas they deem relevant to such a dialogue, i.e. combining the origin that can be transformed from a partner country or added to a product of another partner country, while being considered a “product originating” from that second partner country for the purposes of a specific trade agreement. 3. To the extent that trade between Tunisia or the Community and Algeria or Morocco falls under identical rules of origin, the terms “their ships” and “factory ships” referred to in paragraph 1, point f), also apply to Algerian or Moroccan vessels or to factory vessels referred to in paragraph 2. Relations between the parties, as well as all the provisions of the agreement itself, are based on respect for human rights and democratic principles that guide their domestic and international policies and are an essential element of the agreement. In the case of practices inconsistent with paragraph 1, point (c), such appropriate measures, provided that the general agreement on tariffs and trade applies to it, can only be adopted in accordance with the procedures and terms of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and all other relevant instruments negotiated under its aegis and applicable between the contracting parties. 1. This agreement does not impede the maintenance or establishment of unions, free trade zones or border trade regimes, as long as they do not result in changes to the trade regimes provided for by this agreement. In 2004, Tunsia signed the Agadir Agreement with Jordan, Egypt and Morocco.

This has forced all parties to remove all tariffs on trade between them and to harmonize their legislation on customs standards and procedures. The Agadir agreement came into force in July 2006 and is implemented by the Agadir technical unit in Amman. 2. Without prejudice to Article 11, these agreements do not affect the EU`s provisions on the transmission of information of information of interest to the Competent Commission and the Customs Authorities of the Member States between the competent services of the Member States.
