What is the capital of Tunisia?

Does “counterpart” mean “équivalent”?

Here’s an extract1 from the Oxford Dictionary of English:

Counterpart (noun) 1. a person or thing that corresponds to or has the same function as another person or thing in a different place or situation: the minister held talks with his French counterpart.

As you can see, there is no notion of opposition. “Counterpart” means, more or less “the same, but in a different context”. The proper translation would is thus indeed “homologue” or, in some contexts, “équivalent”.

Homologue (A., —subst.) Personne ou collectivité remplissant un rôle analogue d’une structure à une autre, d’un pays à un autre.
