National reconciliation, “a model to follow” for establishment of security, stability


The President of the National Council of Human Rights (NCHR), Fafa Sid Lakhdar Benzerrouki, said, Sunday in Algiers, that the national reconciliation in Algeria is “a model to follow” for the establishment of peace and stability in the different regions of the world.


Speaking at a meeting with the members of the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (CVJR) in Mali, Ms. Benzerrouki said that the Algerian experience of national reconciliation is “a source of inspiration for several countries in crisis”, stressing that this experience is “a model to follow” for the resolution of internal conflicts.


Referring to the historical background of this experience, particularly with regard to the legal aspects of the Charter for Peace and National Reconciliation initiated by the President of the Republic, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the President of the NCHR highlighted the efforts made by the leader of the State to expose this charter and  sensitize the citizens on its importance  through  various outings on the ground and popular meetings.

Highlighting the role of civil society in promoting national reconciliation, the same official called on the members of the Commission to sensitize Malian civil society on the importance of implementing national reconciliation, taking into account the specificities of the country.

For their part, the members of the CVJR expressed “their strong will” to learn from the Algerian experience of national reconciliation in view of its positive results.
