ALGIERS- The works of the 4th session of the Algerian-French Joint Economic Committee (COMEFA) started Sunday, in Algiers, under the co-chairmanship of the minister of Foreign Affairs Abdelkader Messahel and the French minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-YvesLe Drian.

This meeting takes place in the presence of the Algerian minister of Industry and Mining Youcef Yousfi and the French minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire.

On this occasion, Messahel will hold a meeting with his French counterpart in which they will discuss, on a bilateral level, recollection issues, those of archives and the Algerian victims of the French nuclear tests conducted in Reggane (Province of Adrar, South) during the colonial period.

Furthermore, as part of the regular bilateral consultations between Algeria and France, Messahel and Le Drian will co-chair the third session of the Bilateral Dialogue on Political and Security Issues.

The two ministers will review the various issues relating to both the bilateral component and those relating to the regional situation, particularly at the security and international levels.

In this regard, they will particularly examine the situation in Libya, Mali and in the Sahel.
