Algeria to pursue 'reconciliation' with Morocco
Algeria will continue efforts to "normalise" relations with Morocco, AtlasInfo quoted Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci as saying on Tuesday (January 3rd). Speaking on Algerian national radio, Medelci said that the closure of the border between Algeria and Morocco "has never been a final decision".
"Reconciliation with Morocco will be consolidated with the new Moroccan government," the Algerian minister said.
Medelci also noted that Arab Maghreb Union (UMA) foreign ministers would meet next month in Morocco. "The changes that have occurred in Tunisia, Libya and other Arab countries can only encourage us to move faster in building the UMA," Medelci said.
