First session of bilateral Algerian-Mauritanian borders commission kicks off

The work of the first session of the Algerian-Mauritanian bilateral borders commission kicked off Monday in Algiers, headed by the Minister of Interior, Local Authorities and Urban Development, Kamel Beljoud, and his Mauritanian counterpart, Mohamed Salem Ould Marzouk.

The two-day meeting will be attended by the governors of Adrar and Tindouf on the Algerian side, and Executives on the Mauritanian side, in addition to representatives of a number of relevant ministerial sectors and security services from both countries.

Last April, a memorandum of understanding was signed in Nouakchott related to the establishment of the Algerian-Mauritanian bilateral borders commission, and this is the culmination of a long track of distinguished historical relations, which have recently witnessed an escalating dynamism.

It is expected that this committee will establish a new direction in the bilateral cooperation and create promising development prospects that serve the mutual interests between the two countries.

It also aims to enhance investment opportunities, implement partnership projects in priority sectors at the level of common borders areas, and promotes and intensifies economic, commercial, cultural and sports exchanges, as well as ending isolation from residents of those border areas.

For reference, the work of this committee, which will continue in a closed session, will culminate in recommendations in the form of a work program that affects all sectors through minutes of the meeting that will be signed by the Ministers of Interior of the two countries.
