ALGIERS- Foreign Affairs minister Ramtane Lamamra examined Thursday, during a working session with his Palestinian counterpart Riyad Al-Maliki, the bilateral relations and ways to promote them.
The two officials underlined the importance to relaunch the Algerian-Palestinian joint commission and the other cooperation frameworks in view of boosting bilateral relations to the highest level according to the decisions sanctioning the State visit of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, last December to Algiers.
In addition, they broached the current preparations, in anticipation of the 26th Arab Summit scheduled on 28 and 29 March in Sharm El Sheikh.
In this regard, Lamamra insisted on the need to reintroduce the Palestinian issue on the agenda of the common Arab action and on the agenda of the upcoming Arab Summits, reiterating Algeria’s firm position and its solidarity with the Palestinian people and their just cause, in consecration of their right to the edification of an Independent State with Al Quds as capital.
