TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) - Angelina Jolie is urging the world community to continue helping Tunisia with its refugee crisis as thousands flood in from its war-torn neighbor, Libya.

The Hollywood celeb and goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees heaped praise on Tunisia for the way it has been dealing with the problem after a meeting with the Tunisian foreign minister, wrapping up a two-day visit Wednesday.

State news agency TAP quoted Jolie as offering the country her
"solidarity."

Jolie visited the Tunisia-Libya border area Tuesday.

The UNHCR says more than 400,000 people have fled from Libya over the last month amid fighting between rebels and longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi's forces.
