ALGIERS- Niger’s Minister of State, Minister of Interior, Public Security, Decentralization and Customary and Religious Affairs Mohamed Bazoum expressed, Monday in Algiers, his satisfaction at the outcomes of the 6th session
of Algeria-Niger Border Committee, especially regarding the creation of monitoring mechanisms of bilateral cooperation.
“I would like to express my satisfaction at the quality of the work achieved and the outcomes of the session, as we have set up a mechanism to follow up the implementation of the decisions we have made,” he said in his closing address at the 6th session of Algeria-Niger Border Committee.
Bazoum added that the two countries have strengthened their cooperation in the sectors of police, gendarmerie and civil protection, with a view to securing border between the two countries.
“The issue of illegal migration can’t be dissociated from the transnational crime in general, as we all know transnational crime networks are interconnected and all involved parties have the same objectives and all trafficking activities fuel each other and generate insecurity,” he said.
The Nigerien minister hailed Algeria and its president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, for the quality of hospitality, adding that the visit was “very fruitful.”
Algeria-Niger Border Committee was set up in accordance with the agreement signed in Algiers on 30 October 1997, with the aim of strengthening cooperation in border regions, especially regarding security, movement of people and illegal migration, as well as the multifaceted economic cooperation.
