Western Sahara: Culture Minister Mihoubi hands over 7000-plus books to SADR


Minister of Culture Azzedine Mihoubi handed over on Saturday, in Algiers, a total of 7000 books to the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR).


A total of 7000 books, published in 2016 and 2017, have been gifted to the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) as part of the cooperation in the field of culture between the two countries’ culture ministries. This action coincided with the wrap up of the 23rd International Book Fair of Algiers (SILA 2018).

Between poetry and prose, these books are the fruit of Sahrawi writers, like “Glory of people” by Houcine Ibrahim, “Wedding in a prison” by Khadidja Hamdi and the handbook “Cultural guide of Sahrawi teacher” by Ghali Ahmed  Laabid.

In this aspect, the Minister described this initiative as a “token of friendship” between the two countries.

“The handing over is a “first step” towards the publication of a series of writings dealing with the literature of Western Sahara and its writers, witnesses of “struggle led by these people,” highlighted the official.

For his part, Sahrawi ambassador to Algeria Abdelkader Taleb praised this “friendly gesture,” pointing out that this contribution “will further enrich the Sahrawi library” and allow “making the struggle of the Sahrawi people known to others.”

It is worth mentioning that 23rd SILA wrapped up Saturday after more than ten days of cultural activities.
