TAMANRASSET (Algeria)- The participants at the Algeria-Niger bilateral meeting, whose works ended Tuesday in Tamanrasset (1970-km south of Algiers), stressed the importance of a strong and lasting partnership between the two countries.
They underlined, during the meeting which is part of the action plan of the Algeria-Niger bilateral committee, the need to have a solid and lasting partnership in issues of common interest.
The works of the meeting preparing for the sixth session of the bilateral committee have been co-chaired by the governors of Algerian provinces Tamanrasset and Illizi and their counterparts of Niger’s Agadez and Tahoua, in the presence of managers of security institutions and heads of other departments from both countries.
