Following discussions with President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz of Mauritania, Tebboune told reporters there is a “convergence of views between Algeria and Mauritania in all fields of cooperation, especially in security and economic areas.”
“We (Algeria and Mauritania) live in symbiosis and we continue to do it,” the prime minister added.
The two officials discussed bilateral cooperation and examined ways and methods to boost and diversify it.
The situation in the Sahel and the Sahara was also raised, especially the security challenges facing the region, especially the spread of terrorist activities, organized crime and drug trafficking.
