Macron announces in Algeria a commission of historians from both countries on memory

Must Read

On the first day of his official visit to Algeria, the French president held extensive talks with his counterpart Abdelmajid Tebboune. At the end of these exchanges, the two leaders made a statement at the El Mouradia Palace and tried to show their willingness to relaunch the association between France and Algeria. But for Emmanuel Macron, this visit has especially allowed a breakthrough in the field of memory.

Emmanuel Macron and Abdelmadjid Tebboune did not separate after their handshake, upon the arrival of the former at the Algiers-Houari-Boumédiène airport. Both reviewed the troops before the national anthems. The two presidents held their first exchange in an airport room, surrounded by their main ministers.

Next, Emmanuel Macron went to the Martyrs’ Memorial, a mandatory part of official visits to Algeria, before meeting Abdelmadjid Tebboune at the El Mouradia presidential palace, on the heights of Algiers. The two heads of state had their first face-to-face meeting.

To close this first day of Emmanuel Macron in Algeria, a dinner was organized in his honor at the People’s Palace. A joint statement was then made, in which Abdelmajid Tebboune welcomed the “encouraging results” that allow “promising prospects to be outlined.” He insisted on the determination of both countries to “move forward” and “intensify efforts to improve relations.” The Algerian President mentioned in particular an “intensification of high-level visits”.
