Iran and Algeria to strengthen bilateral ties for a better future

During their meeting, Amir-Abdollahian lauded the relationship between the two countries, describing it as “excellent.” He also commended Algeria for its anti-colonial struggle and ongoing support for occupied Palestine.

In addition, it was announced that parliamentarians from both nations have agreed to hold a virtual meeting with the heads of parliaments to condemn the recent incidents of Quran burning in parts of Europe.

Boughali echoed the sentiments of his Iranian counterpart, stressing the common stance Iran and Algeria share on various international issues.

He expressed his hope for the expansion of mutual relations in diverse fields. Boughali also denounced the recent terrorist attack on the Shah Cheragh shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz.

Algeria has taken significant steps to attract foreign investment by implementing new investment laws. These laws offer incentives to foreign investors, and Boughali expressed his desire for Iran to be among the first countries to invest in Algeria. This shows Algeria’s eagerness to deepen economic ties with Iran and benefit from its expertise in various sectors.

The positive trajectory of Iran-Algeria relations is not a recent development. Last month, Algerian Foreign Minister Ahmed Attaf expressed satisfaction with the continuing relationship between the two nations.

He highlighted that diplomatic ties were resumed a few decades after being severed in the mid-1990s. Furthermore, he conveyed Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune’s support for the positive movement in Arab-Iranian relations, particularly in light of the recent resumption of ties between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

The strengthened diplomatic ties between Iran and Algeria hold immense potential for both countries. Iran, with its rich natural resources and technological advancements, can contribute significantly to Algeria’s economic growth and development. Algeria, on the other hand, can provide Iran with a gateway to North Africa, opening up new opportunities for trade and investment.

Furthermore, the alignment of their stances on major international issues, such as the Palestinian cause, strengthens their partnership and positions them as important players in the region. By working together, Iran and Algeria can amplify their voices and advocate for their shared goals on the global stage.
