Mr. Attaf holds talks with South African counterpart

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Ahmed Attaf held bilateral talks on Friday in Addis Ababa with the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa, Naledi Pandor, on the sidelines of his participation in the 44th ordinary session of the Executive Council of the African Union (AU).

The two sides discussed developments in the ongoing genocide perpetrated against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, and welcomed South Africa’s legal action before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), in perfect harmony with Algeria’s tireless diplomatic efforts within the UN Security Council.

According to the press release, this complementarity aims to activate the provisional measures rendered by the ICJ and to achieve the common objectives of halting Zionist aggression, protecting civilians and ensuring the unimpeded delivery of humanitarian aid while working towards a lasting solution to the Palestinian cause under the resolutions of international legality.

Referring to the latest developments in the Western Sahara cause, the two FMs reiterated their support for the UN Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy, Staffan De Mistura, in their efforts to relaunch the political process aimed at resolving the conflict in Western Sahara, by enabling the Sahrawi people to exercise their inalienable and imprescriptible right to self-determination.

The meeting was also an opportunity to consult and coordinate on the main issues on the agenda of the AU summit scheduled for 17-18 February.
