French president to visit Algeria to relaunch ties: Elysee

PARIS, 21 August 2022, (TON): French presidency said “French President Emmanuel Macron will visit Algeria next week in a bid to improve strained ties between Paris and Algiers.”

The presidency said “this trip will contribute to deepening the bilateral relationship looking to the future… to reinforce Franco-Algerian cooperation in the face of regional challenges and to continue the work of addressing the past.”

Macron is to be in Algeria from Thursday to Saturday next week.

French-Algerian ties hit a low late last year after Macron reportedly questioned whether Algeria had existed as a nation before the French invasion and accused its political-military system of rewriting history and fomenting hatred toward France.
