Algeria encourages Malian movements to greater rapprochement with authorities

ALGIERS –Algeria "encourages the Malian movements to further steps forward and greater rapprochement with the Malian authorities" as part of the peace and the national reconciliation, Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia said Saturday in Algiers.

Answering reporters’ questions following a meeting with Malian counterpart, Soumeylou Boubèye Maïga, Ouyahia said that the role which is currently expected from Algeria after the significant progress achieved under the Algeria- sponsored process for peace in Mali was to "encourage the Malian movements to make further steps forward and greater rapprochement with the Malian authorities."

 "It is an honour for Algeria to have accompanied the Malian brothers in their talks in their country and to have contributed to bridging the views, which resulted in the signing of the peace and reconciliation agreement in Mali."

Stressing that the process "makes significant progress" and that "dialogue is still underway and the signatory parties continue to work for preserving peace," Ouyahia reaffirmed that Algeria "has helped Mali in several fields, likewise the strengthening of the military capacities to preserve security, the training of its personnel working in different sectors and the sharing of its experience in terms of the national reconciliation."
