ALGIERS-Algeria’s efforts in the fight against terrorism and organized crime have been highlighted Wednesday by the delegation of the Sub-Committee on Transatlantic Defence and Security Co-operation (DSCTC) of the NATO’s
parliamentary assembly (NATO PA), stressing that these efforts made Algeria “a reference” in this field.
During a meeting with a delegation of the Council of the National (Upper House) chaired by Vice-President of the Council Djamel Ould Abbas, the NATO Pa delegation highlighted “Algeria’s efforts in the fight against terrorism and organized crime, dubbing it a reference and an exemplary model,” the Upper House said in a communiqué.
Held part of bilateral dialogue, the meeting enabled the NATO PA delegation to enquire about “the national reconciliation policy adopted by President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika since 1999”, the same source stated.
European MPs broached “the implementation scope of this policy and measures to reintegrate beneficiaries from this policy, mainly their relatives, according to the law promulgated on 2006.”
“Algeria has fought against terrorism alone and in the context of an international isolation, mainly from European countries,” Ould Abbas recalled.
Both delegation discussed the situation in Libya and stressed the need to favour a peaceful solution given the negative impact of the military intervention conducted without considering consequences.”
