 French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has expressed his country's support for Tunisia following Wednesday's deadly attack on a Tunis museum.

"Tunisia and France are in the same front against terrorist threats and attacks. France is willing to offer all necessary capabilities to help Tunisia in this regard," a statement released by the Tunisian presidency quoted Cazeneuve as saying following a meeting with Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi.

Cazeneuve arrived in the country earlier Friday to show solidarity with Tunisia, where at least 23 people – including 20 foreign tourists – were killed when gunmen stormed Tunis' Bardo Museum on Wednesday.

Tourists from Italy, Japan, Poland and Spain were among those killed in the attack, which has since been claimed by a Daesh-affiliated group in an audio recording.

Cazeneuve is due to meet later with several senior Tunisian officials to discuss means of boosting cooperation on security and counter-terrorism, the French Interior Ministry said in a statement.
