TUNIS - A presidential decree in the official gazette said on Saturday that Tunisia will issue a national subscription to cover part of state budget needs for the year 2022.

There were no details provided on the amount of the subscription.

The North Africa country, suffering from its worst financial crisis, is seeking to reach an agreement with the International Monetary Fund in April.
