Algeria, French Prime Ministers Plan New Bilateral Relations

  • 0

Algerian and French Prime Ministers have planned to strengthen warm relations after the reconciliation between the presidents of the two countries in late August 2022.

The plan was expressed at the beginning of a two-day state visit of French prime minister Elizabeth Borne alongside a 15-member top-level delegation in Algiers.

She said, “(On visas) Over the past few months, in line with the Algiers Declaration, our discussions have aimed to better manage and organize the movement of people between our two countries. We have discussed ways of encouraging student, scientific and artistic mobility – I am thinking of the artist residency programme and of course economic mobility.”

She mentioned three pillars for this “strengthened” partnership: the economy to “develop trade, innovation and create jobs”; mobility and visas; and youth through increased educational and cultural cooperation.

“The time of misunderstanding is behind us,” Ms Borne had said ahead of the visit on the issue of ultra-sensitive memory of colonization and the Algerian war.

On his part, Aïmene Benabderrahmane, Algeria’s Prime minister said they both ”comfortably noted together the quality of political dialogue between the two countries on all levels and especially between the two countries presidents and the strong agreement on the key issue of strengthening consultation and coordination around regional and international issues of joint interest.”
