The President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, affirmed today, Monday, in Ankara, that talks with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, showed a convergence of views on issues of common interest, especially the Palestinian cause, the Libyan crisis and the situation in the Sahel region.
The President of the Republic said, during a joint press conference with President Erdogan, that “there is a substantive agreement with the brothers in Turkey, on the need to allow the Libyan people decide on its own fate through elections,” stressing that the settlement of the Libyan crisis will be through “the organization of fair elections that restore power to the Libyan people and that both (Algeria and Turkey) can help manage these elections.”
He explained that Algeria and Turkey agreed to continue consultation and coordination on Libya, reiterating that the solution to the crisis in this country “lies in organizing elections and not in anything else.”
Regarding the developments in the occupied Palestinian territories, the President of the Republic affirmed that there is consensus with the Turkish side on the need for the international community to take actions to end the tragedy of the Palestinian people, who are being subjected to continuous attacks, abuses and violations from Zionist occupation.
He indicated that the two sides discussed during the talks the situation in the Sahel countries and the efforts and endeavors required to dry up the sources of dangerous terrorist activity and restore security and stability in the region, noting that the two countries “will carry out several joint operations in this regard.”
