The Chief of Staff, Deputy Minister of Defense, Ahmed Gaïd Salah, on his second day of inspection and work visit to the 2nd Military Region in Oran, delivered a speech.
Ahmed Gaid Salah delivered a speech on the sidelines of a meeting with the elements of the units who executed a live-ammunition exercise that he supervised.
“In order to achieve this noble goal, the National People’s Army will continue, thanks to Allah the Almighty, to make more efforts for the permanent promotion, the sustained development and the mobilization of its various components in order to guarantee the legitimate right of the Algerian people to enjoy a total peace of mind for the present and the future of their country, “he said, speaking from Oran.
In a speech that was expected, the Chief of Staff made no reference to the political situation. Especially since, at the time, the two chambers of parliament, sitting together, have appointed Abdelkader Bensalah as Acting Head of State for a maximum period of ninety days.
