First session of Algerian-Mauritanian Bilateral Border Committee in Algeria

Algeria will host, starting tomorrow, Monday, the works of the first session of the Algerian-Mauritanian bilateral border commission, following the signing in last April in Nouakchott of a memorandum of understanding related to its establishment, according to a press release issued by the Ministry of Interior, Local Authorities and Urban Development.

The Minister of Interior, Local Governments and Urban Development, Kamel Beldjoud, will chair the work of this committee equally with his Mauritanian counterpart, Mohamed Salem Ould Marzouk, who is expected in Algeria this afternoon.

The achievement of this first session of the Algerian-Mauritanian bilateral border committee is the culmination of a long track of distinguished historical relations, which have witnessed an escalating dynamic recently, according to a statement by the Ministry of Interior.

The convening of this committee, which meets once a year in one of the border countries or states, awaits the “critical stage” in the completion of the strategic road linking Tindouf and Zouerate (about 900 km), which is considered an axis that will change the face of the entire region through its development and breaking its isolation and reviving commercial, economic and cultural activity, as well as relations between the two brotherly peoples, as stated in the memorandum of understanding.

Beldjoud had confirmed in Nouakchott that the signing of the memorandum of understanding is a “new building block” in bilateral cooperation, adding that the development of border areas is at the forefront of the “priorities” of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, who attaches special importance to the residents of those regions, especially through programming and implementation of various economic, educational, sports and other projects.

For his part, the Mauritanian minister stressed that the “fruitful” economic cooperation between the two countries will be known as soon as the work of this committee is launched, as a “qualitative leap” that will enhance investment opportunities and establish partnership projects in priority sectors.
