The President of the Republic of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni said Sunday that Algeria was a “reliable partner” to his country, stressing “his positive contribution” to the development and integration of Africa.
In a statement to the media following his talks with the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, President Museveni said he had “fruitful” discussions during this meeting, affirming, in this regard, that Algeria is a “reliable partner” for Uganda.
“We discussed several areas of cooperation, including the fight against terrorism, knowing that Algeria has great experience in this area,” Museveni said, highlighting the importance of the peace factor for an effective development of the African Continental Free Trade Area (ACFTA).
In this regard, Uganda’s President hailed Algeria’s “positive contribution” to the development of the ACFTA through the launch of structuring projects that should allow the African integration and the strengthening of trade on the continent.
As regards bilateral cooperation, he particularly mentioned the field of petrochemicals and hydrocarbons in which the two countries “can launch joint projects, notably refineries in Uganda where oil deposits have been discovered”.
