ALGIERS- The president of the Algerian-French Parliamentary Friendship Group of the French Senate Alain Neri said Sunday, in Algiers, that his country has the willingness to develop cooperation with Algeria, particularly in the sector of culture, professional training and education.

“We are here because we are activists of the friendship between France and Algeria and we come to broach the problems that are important, firstly culture, professional training and education,” he added.
The French parliament said that one of the development factors that strengthen democracy is the economic development, explaining that for its achievement, there should be “good training. It is on these subjects that we came to develop our relations, but it is only a part of our works.”
