US Ambassador to Algeria John Desrocher hands over two documents to national archives


US Ambassador to Algiers John Desrocher, on Wednesday in Algiers, handed over to the National Archives two documents on the US position regarding the National Liberation War and Algeria’s independence (1954-1962).

The first document is the speech made by Senator John F. Kennedy on 2 July 1957 to members of the American Congress, in which he pleaded for the independence of Algeria, while the second is a message of congratulations sent in 1962 by the same official Kennedy who became, at that time, president of the USA.

For his part, the Director General of the National Archives, Abdelmadjid Chikhi, handed a copy of the friendship and peace treaty signed by the two countries in 1795.

Earlier, His Excellency US Ambassador and his wife Karen Rose laid a wreath at the Martyrs’ Monument to honor the martyrs of the Algerian Liberation war.
“Earlier today Karen and I laid a wreath at the Martyrs’ Monument to honor the memory of all those who paid the highest price for freedom and handed over materials to the National Archives related to John F. Kennedy’s connection to Algeria’s fight for independence,” said the American Diplomat in a tweet.
