Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, Aïmene Benabderrahmane reiterated Tuesday in Kef (Tunisia), the commitment of President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune to the bilateral relations between Algeria and Tunisia describing them as “special and privileged.”

“This sincere commitment that marks the cooperation between Algeria and Tunisia was expressed by both countries’ presidents on the occasion of the visit of President Tebboune to his second country, Tunisia, on December 15 and 16, 2021, which was marked by the signing of several bilateral agreements in various fields, in addition to the Declaration of Carthage which provides for the promotion of our relations,” he said.

On this occasion, Benabderrahmane expressed “deep satisfaction” of the achievements made together “in terms of bilateral relations constituting a model for cooperation, understanding, and good neighborliness.
“On that same day of 1958, the Algerian and Tunisian people wanted to write a glorious page that will remain engraved in gold letter in their common history, a chapter illustrating beautiful images of cohesion and mutual support to defend the values of freedom and dignity, driven by the conviction that the strength and depth of relations between the two countries and two peoples can not be affected by the occupier,” he recalled.
“These events have shown the barbarity of the French occupation, its vile methods and its repressive policies towards people seeking freedom while allowing to attract the attention of public opinion on the Algerian Revolution in terms of organization and power, a revolution that had been able to destabilize the occupier,” said the PM.
“The sacrifices of our brave shouhadas fallen during these heinous massacres will remain a source of inspiration for future generations so that they can grasp the true meaning of fraternity and solidarity, reiterating “the strong will of Algeria” and its determination to strengthen ties between the two countries, including fraternity and cohesion, in addition to strengthening bilateral cooperation in all areas,” he concluded.
