On this occasion, the two ministers examined the agenda of the 5+5 Dialogue Conference of the Foreign Ministers which will be held Sunday, in Algiers, said the ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The two foreign Ministers hailed the “quality” of the regular political consultations between the two countries, as well as the bilateral economic partnership “which enjoyed a new momentum over the last few months as a result of notably the opening of an Algerian-Mauritanian border crossing,” said the source.
