ALGIERS- Minister of Maghreb, African Union and Arab League Affairs Abdelkader Messahel affirmed Thursday that the international conference of Algiers on the fight against violent extremism and de-radicalisation launched a clear message to the whole world, revealing “a determination” to combat this phenomenon.
In a statement to the press at the end of the works, Messahel said that this conference “has launched a strong and clear message to the peoples of the world particularly those facing terrorism, revealing a great hope and a determination to work together to combat the phenomena of terrorism and extremism.”
The conference was marked, over two days, by “an exchange of experiences in the fight against terrorism and extremism and broached issues such as Islamophobia and xenophobia which are also forms of extremism,” while calling “to combat this phenomenon through the enactment of laws.”
In this regard, the minister underlined that the conference “was an opportunity to present the Algerian experience in fighting terrorism and extremism.”
Algiers’ conference culminated in 30 recommendations which will be submitted to the summit of New York which will be held in September.
