Algeria: On Wednesday, Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra welcomed the statements of the French presidency on the diplomatic crisis between the two countries, saying that it “respects Algeria”, declaring that his country will participate Friday in an international conference on Libya in Paris.

He told Lamamra that the statement issued by the Elysee Palace on Tuesday, “contrary to the statements that caused disputes and crises, carry reasonable ideas on the grounds that they are ideas that respect Algeria’s past and present history and respect Algerian sovereignty.”

The Elysee had confirmed that President Emmanuel Macron “regrets the differences and misunderstandings” with Algeria and affirms that he has “the greatest respect for the Algerian nation” and “its history”.

Macron angered Algeria after statements reported by Le Monde newspaper on October 2, accusing the Algerian “political-military” regime of devoting “revenues to memory” by presenting its people with an “official history that is not based on facts.” According to the newspaper, he also said that “the building of Algeria as a nation is a phenomenon worth watching. Was there an Algerian nation before French colonialism? This is the question (…)”.

Conference on Libya

Lamamra announced at the conclusion of the conference of heads of Algerian diplomatic and consular missions in the country’s capital that Algeria will participate in the international conference on Libya, which will be held Friday in Paris, but he indicated that “the conditions are not sufficient” for the participation of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune in it.

The Algerian Foreign Minister said that “the conditions are not sufficient for him (Taboun) to personally participate in this symposium, despite his commitment to Algeria’s active role alongside the Libyan brothers, and to push the Libyan cause to the desired peaceful and democratic solution,” according to what the official Algerian news agency quoted him as saying.

On the third of October, Algeria recalled its ambassador to France to protest Macron’s statements, and banned the flights of French military aircraft operating in the Sahel region.

On Tuesday, the Elysee declared that “President Macron has the greatest respect for the Algerian nation, its history and Algeria’s sovereignty.” He wants bilateral relations to develop “in the interest of the Algerian and French peoples, but also in response to major regional challenges, starting with Libya.”

The Elysee Palace said that Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune had received an invitation to attend Friday’s conference to help Libya restore its stability, especially by preparing for the presidential elections scheduled for December 24.

But according to Algerian media, Lamamra will represent his country at the conference. He will be the highest-ranking Algerian official to visit Paris since the ambassador was summoned.

Tebboune had confirmed Saturday that he would not take the “first step” to try to reduce tension with France.

In an interview with the German weekly magazine Der Spiegel, Tebboune said, “I have no regrets. Macron reopened an old conflict in an unhelpful way.”

In the interview, Tebboune asked, “Why did he say this? I think that this is for strategic electoral reasons.”
