FM Messahel, Cuban counterpart hold talks


Foreign Minister Abdelkader Messahel has held talks over the weekend with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly.


During the meeting, they welcomed the quality of solidarity and friendship ties between the two countries by reiterating their commitment to further strengthen them.

The meeting also allowed the two ministers to broach international topical issues, notably the crises and conflicts in Mali, Libya, the Sahel and the issue of Western Sahara. They agreed to continue consultations both in terms of bilateral relations as well on regional and international issues of common interest.

On Saturday, Messahel addressed the UN General Assembly, saying that Algeria was “the very first target of terrorism”, a phenomenon which has become one of the world’s most destructive scourges.

“Terrorism, of which Algeria was the very first target at the end of the last century, has become nowadays one the world’s most destructive scourges,” he said during the UNGA general debate. Algeria, with great sacrifices, “was able to address it alone” by adopting an approach and measures which proved their effectiveness.

“This experience, that we are ready to share, was based on the conviction that any strategy (to combat terrorism) must imperatively attack the root causes of this scourge and that it must be accompanied by a policy of a determined struggle against radicalization and violent extremism,” he said.

He called on the international community to ensure that the struggle against this scourge is accompanied by de-radicalization measures and a real promotion of policies advocating the principle of living together.
