The Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Amar Belani, received on Tuesday in Algiers the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Croatian Parliament, Gari Cappelli, according to a statement from the ministry.
The meeting “was an opportunity to reiterate the will of both parties and their common aspiration to deepen the excellent relationship between the two countries, to develop and expand bilateral cooperation, especially in the light of the successful Algerian-Croatian political consultations, whose third session was held in Algiers on 21 February” under the chairmanship of Belani and the State Secretary for Political Affairs at the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Frano Matusic, the statement added.
In this context, special consideration was given to the importance of implementing the recommendations of the third session of political consultations, particularly with regard to increasing the volume of bilateral trade, developing bilateral cooperation and exchanging expertise and successful experiences in the field of agriculture, tourism, energy, culture, sports and the naval industry with the establishment of a comprehensive economic partnership between the two countries.
The two officials also agreed to “strengthen parliamentary cooperation”, welcoming the creation of the Algeria-Croatia parliamentary friendship group as a new mechanism to strengthen cooperation and dialogue between the two friendly countries on all matters of common interest, the statement said.
During the talks, the two officials exchanged views and assessments of the current international situation, expressing their “great satisfaction” regarding the convergence of views between the two countries on the claim to strengthen the multiparty action system and the call for the implementation of international legality and international law without exception, far from the double standards policy in dealing with the various crises and conflicts around the world,” the ministry’s statement concluded.
