In a message read on his behalf by Justice Minister Tayeb Louh, during a ceremony on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, Bouteflika urged the Algerian women to "redouble efforts to rise to the expectations and the mission of building Algeria’s future."
On that occasion, the Head of the State called upon the Algerian women to accomplish their duties in the service of family and country, to "continue to assume their historical role of safeguarding our authenticity and educating our rising generations."
Algeria, added Bouteflika, "has decided to access technology world, but we all are aware that today’s world and its technological mechanisms are designed to serve other civilizations, with which we are compelled to coexist, by preserving our civilization and our identity based on three components, Islam, Arab and Tamazight, and by giving a place to our country liberated thanks to unforgettable sacrifices in our national History and in the History of the modern world."
Ensuring training and education to the rising generations is one of the main duties of the Algerian women, added the president of the Republic who recalled that the Algerian people "made the civil harmony and the national reconciliation triumph over discord (fitna) and destruction, and worked to reconcile the Algerians with themselves and with their homeland."
This is exactly where the fundamental role of family and women came into play; in order to teach the rising generations our ancestral values and the civic sense" and "reinforce the school’s foundations, to fight against dissemination of violence and drugs, with all the threats that pose for youth and the living standard to which we are striving."
Instill effort-oriented culture in our children and among the society is among the duties of the Algerian women because Algeria today needs "more than ever before to promote the spirit and the culture of work so we can build a decent and proud Algeria, free of excessive dependence on hydrocarbons," concluded the President of the Republic.
