The speaker of the People’s National Assembly (lower house of parliament), BrahimBoughali, said Monday that Algeria had a “clear strategy” to deal with security threats in Africa and will always be against any unconstitutional change.
“Algeria, which plays a leading diplomatic role due to its internal stability and democratic environment, has a clear strategy to deal with security threats in Africa, mainly in neighbouring countries,” Boughali said in an opening address at a one-day parliamentary conference on “Algeria and Africa: Opportunities and Challenges.”
The strategy lays on the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of states and the spirit of cooperation and exchange of experiences.
“Algeria’s experience allows it to play a central role,” the speaker of the People’s National Assembly said.
“The achievements of the People’s National Army in the fight against terrorism, crime and different scourges, including drug trafficking and smuggling, empowers it to be an essential partner in a continent shaken by crises.”
Algeria is making efforts to “resolve the outstanding issues” in the continent, which has created tension and various crises, including the decolonization issue of Western Sahara.”
