ALGERIA WANTS TO PRESERVE TERRIROTIAL INTEGRITY OF MALI, LIBYA, SAYS PARLIAMENT SPEAKER

ALGIERS, April 14 — Algeria’s efforts for peace in Mali and Libya show its commitment to preserving the territorial integrity in those two neighbouring countries, says the Speaker of the People’s National Assembly (the lower house of the Algerian Parliament), Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa.

Ould Khelifa, who was speaking when he received the Chairman of the French Senate’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Armed Forces, Jean-Pierre Raffarin, here Sunday, added that Algeria’s moves to encourage dialogue among the parties in conflict in these countries were aimed at meeting the aspirations of the two countries’ peoples for security and stability.

A media statement issued by the People’s National Assembly quoted him as saying that Algeria’s efforts in this respect were in no way meant to serve any side to the detriment of others in the conflicts in the two countries.

Ould Khelifa also warned against the threat of terrorism which, he said, constituted a threat to everybody.
He underlined the need for a “firm will to eradicate the scourge of terrorism, which has neither border nor religion”.

Concerning Algerian-French relations, the Speaker said exchanges of visits by the top officials of the two countries showed that the bilateral ties are increasingly developing in a mutually beneficial manner.
