60th anniversary of Algeria’s independence: Iran FM sends greetings to Algerian Government, people


ALGIERS- Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian sent a cable of congratulations to his Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra on the 60th anniversary of Algeria’s Independence.

In his cable, Mr. Abdollahian expressed his sincere and warmest congratulations, wishing the Government and people of Algeria steady progress and prosperity.

On different occasions, the two countries’ leaders have expressed their determination for the promotion of cooperation between Iran and Algeria in various fields considering the two countries’ history and ample capacities.

Politically, both countries aspire that the abundant commonalties shared by both countries and basic role of the holy religion of Islam in breaking the chain of colonialism and gaining freedom and independence would prepare the ground for expansion of cordial and brotherly relations at the highest possible level in all fields to materialize lofty aspirations of the two big revolutions and make joint efforts for restoration of peace, stability and security.

Earlier, President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune held, on the sidelines of 6th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), held in February in Qatar’s Doha, talks with Iranian counterpart, Sayyed Ebrahim Raissi.

During the meeting, the two parties vowed to further propel all-around bilateral cooperation, and reviewed the latest developments regionally and internationally. A convergence of views between the two countries on just causes, including the Palestinian one, has been observed.

Officials from Iran’s Foreign Ministry paid, this year, a visit to Algeria, during which the state of Algerian-Iranian relations and the prospects for their enhancement were touched on.

Do note that Algeria-Iran parliamentary friendship group was set up, few months ago, at the headquarters of the People’s National Assembly (APN), with the aim of “consolidating parliamentary ties and building bridges of communication and cooperation between the two sisterly countries.”

The group is chaired by MP Moussa Kherfi from the Movement for Society and Peace (MSP) party.

On July, 5th, 1962, Algeria gained its independence from France. In this long struggle that saw profound and heavy sacrifices, some 1.5 million Algerians martyred with millions displaced.
