EU position on Western Sahara confirms vainness of Rabat’s attempt to circumvent international law

ALGIERS-The Special Envoy in charge of the Western Sahara issue and Maghreb countries at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Amar Belani stressed Monday that the position of the European Union (EU) to fully support the United Nations (UN) efforts to engage a political process for the settlement of the Sahrawi issue “contributes to reducing the campaign led by Morocco to resurrect its 2007 proposal to a vain attempt to circumvent international law.” 

“This limpid position of the EU contributes to reducing the campaign led by Morocco to resurrect the proposal of 2007 to a vain attempt to circumvent international law,” stated Belani after the response of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy JosepBorrell regarding the Sahrawi issue.

 “The souk of Marrakech will remain a mystification and a swindle in which the puppeteer Bourita (Minister of Foreign Affairs) has lost the little credibility he had…,” wrote Amar Belani.

Belani responds to “ridiculously irresponsible” statements of Morocco’s representative to UN

ALGIERS- The special envoy for Western Sahara Issue and Maghreb Countries Amar Belani responded Monday to the “ridiculously irresponsible” statements made by Morocco’s permanent representative to the United Nations which attempted to undermine the national unity of the Algerian people.

“Incorrigible Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations has again made ridiculously irresponsible statements undermining miserably the national unity of the Algeria people,” said Belani in a statement to APS, underlining that the unity of the Algerian people was “forged in the burning crucible of our glorious liberation war.”

“Naturally, the one whose modern State (i.e. Morocco) was founded by the resident general of the French protectorate marshal Lyautey (whose equestrian statute is still in Casablanca) can’t understand the patriotic consciousness which fiercely driven on the Algerian people in defending their national unity and their country’s territorial integrity.”

“By rereading the idiotic remarks of the hilarious ambassador, we could only think about the fate of the peaceful people of the Rif who are subjected to a brutal repression and whose innocent leaders are rotting in the medieval jails of the Kingdom, undergoing the worst physical abuses and humiliations,” said Belani

Council of Ministers passes draft new law on investment 

The draft of the new law on investment, presented by the Minister of Industry, provides a series of measures to implement the commitments of the President of the Republic to the improvement of the investment climate and ensure appropriate conditions to free initiatives and diversify the national economy under a comprehensive and stable vision that takes into account the principles of freedom of investment, transparency and equality, and under the provisions of the Constitution of 2020.

This vision also takes into consideration the reorganization of institutions working in the field of investment by focusing the missions of the National Investment Council (CNI) on the proposal, coordination, and evaluation of the implementation of national policy on investment.

Moreover, the new law on investment provides for changing the name of the National Agency for Investment Development (ANDI) to the Algerian Agency for Investment Promotion, and assigning it the “the role of promoter and support to investment through the creation of a single window with national competence for large-scale projects and foreign investment, and the creation of decentralized single windows for local investment.” 

The Agency will also be responsible for “fight against bureaucracy through the digitization of procedures related to investment, the creation of the digital platform of the investor and the immediate issuance of the certificate of registration of the investment project,” said the same source.

After the presentation of the bill, the President of the Republic welcomed the new version adopted by the Council of Ministers after taking into account the comments and proposals raised during the debate. 

Indeed, the new law on investment “provides further guarantees on the principle of freedom of investment and legislation to protect investors from bureaucratic abuses through the creation of an independent high-level mechanism, composed of judges and economic and financial experts. Placed under the Presidency of the Republic, this mechanism will be responsible for ruling on complaints and appeals filed by investors.”

The recommendations include the placement of the Algerian Agency for Investment Promotion under the authority of the Prime Minister, the reduction of the import bill, and the imposition of maximum penalties to any person hindering, in any way, the investment operations, whatever his position or the nature of his responsibility, said the statement.
