The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, and his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, agreed on the “importance of increasing the pace of coordination” between the delegations of the two countries within the African Union to support peaceful solutions to crises, stressing their will to work together for the success of the upcoming Arab summit in Algeria.

A Foreign Ministry statement said today, Sunday, that Lamamra, who is on a working visit to Egypt in his capacity as a special envoy of the President of the Republic, held a working session with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry, during which “ they centered their discussions on the relations of brotherliness and cooperation between the two brotherly countries and peoples, as well as the developments in the situation on the Arab and African arenas”.

In the context of the security and political developments on the continental arena, the two men stressed “the importance of increasing the pace of coordination between the delegations of the two countries within the continental organization and within its various structures to support peaceful solutions to crises in accordance with an approach based on the principle of African solutions to the problems of the continent and avoid the logic of external dictates that violate the sovereignty of states and complicate the existing challenges.”

From this standpoint, Lamamra reviewed “Algeria’s relentless efforts in the Peace and Security Council of the African Union to enable the Republic of Mali and the regional group of West African countries to overcome the current crisis in a way that preserves the gains and prospects of the peace and national reconciliation process led by Algeria in this sister country.”

The statement added that the two ministers reviewed “the various fields and mechanisms of bilateral cooperation and their consolidation, as part of the implementation of the strategic instructions and practical stages set by the presidents of the two countries.”

Meanwhile, the two heads of diplomacy affirmed their readiness to work together to achieve the success of the Arab summit in Algeria, and they discussed the latest developments in the Libyan crisis and the prospects for activating a political solution to end foreign interference in this sister country.

The Foreign Ministry statement concluded by saying that the two ministers agreed to “continue to work and coordinate on all issues of common interest at the bilateral and multilateral levels, in a manner that reflects the will of the leaderships of the two countries to develop bilateral cooperation and reinforce their adherence to their dual Arab-African role.”
