TUNIS- Minister of Justice Tayeb Louh, who is leading an Algerian delegation at the 36th Arab Interior Ministers Council (AIMC) in Tunis, emphasized the “need to strengthen the control of border crossings, secure passports and step up cooperation and coordination between specialized services.
In his speech on behalf of Minister of Interior, Local Authorities and National Planning Noureddine Bedoui during this session’s works, Louh stressed the need to follow orientation measures aimed at addressing the concerns of misguided young people and re-launching the economic development, affirming “Algeria’s willingness to share its experience in terms of national reconciliation which allowed turning a dark page and laying the foundations for a new phase based on concord and tolerance.
This approach was enshrined, he said, by the United Nations General Assembly in accordance with its resolution n 130/72 on the International Day of Living Together in Peace, celebrated on 16 May, at the initiative of Algeria.
“Restoring peace and security in the world, notably in the Sahel region is an initiative that Algeria has worked, for a long time, to achieve thanks to the enlightened guidelines of President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika while making dialogue prevail and unifying ranks,” said Louh, underlining that this approach “was adopted by Algeria through its mediatory role in several crises that affected the region.”
The minister warned against “the dangerous use of new techniques, notably Internet, by terrorist groups as a mean to spread their extremist ideas,” emphasizing “the need to continue efforts to foil ant cybernetic threat and find the best solution to eradicate this phenomenon.”
