Elisabeth Borne will soon travel to Algeria

Diplomatic relations between Algeria and France seem to be taking a new trajectory. Indeed, after a period of cold weather, the two countries have become considerably closer, especially after the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron. In the wake of this visit, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne will travel to Algiers in October at the head of a large delegation.

Thus, according to media quoting diplomatic sources, Elisabeth Borne will travel to Algiers for a High Level Intergovernmental Committee (CIHN) scheduled for October. This committee’s mission is to put into practice the agreements between Emmanuel Macron and Abdelmadjid Tebboune. Therefore, the Prime Minister will co-chair this summit meeting with Aïmene Benabderrahmane in the presence of several ministers from both countries. This is how the two countries intend to concretize “the renewed partnership” signed at the end of August by the presidents Abdelmadjid Tebboune and Emmanuel Macron.

According to the same sources who gave the information, this summit will have for agenda, the energy cooperation between the two countries as well as several sensitive subjects including the Algerian undocumented migrants in France and the question of visas.

“The meeting was an opportunity for both parties to renew their determination to move forward (…) for the activation of cooperation mechanisms and the consolidation of the positive dynamic, on the horizon of the next bilateral deadlines, notably the High-Level Intergovernmental Committee (CIHN), the Joint Franco-Algerian Economic Committee (COMEFA) and the Algerian-French Strategic Dialogue,” Abdelmadjid Tebboune said during the French president’s visit. In this statement, the Algerian Head of State therefore mentioned this summit and even more, he spoke of the Joint Franco-Algerian Economic Committee. So it is very likely that even this committee will meet during the visit of the French Prime Minister.
