President Barack Obama will meet with Tunisia's prime minister at the White House next week.
Prime Minister Beji Caid Essebsi took power after Tunisians overthrew their long-serving dictator in January. The uprising sparked the pro-democracy movement that has swept through the Arab world this year.
Tunisia will hold elections Oct. 23 for an assembly that will write a new constitution.
The White House says Obama will discuss America's strong support for Tunisia's transition to democracy during his meeting with Essebsi on Oct. 7.
