APS - 09 September 2021

ALGIERS- The minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, met Thursday in Cairo, Egypt, with his Palestinian counterpart, Riyad al-Maliki, tackling the developments of the Palestinian issue and the other points on the Arab Foreign Ministers meeting's agenda.

In a message posted on his official twitter account, Lamamra wrote "I've met my brother Riyad al-Maliki, the Foreign minister of our sister country Palestine, before the beginning of the Arab Foreign Ministers meeting, to consult each other on the developments of our major and fundamental issue (Palestine question), as well as the other points on the meeting's agenda."

Lamamra takes part Thursday, in Cairo, in the ordinary session of the Arab League Ministerial Council, the ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday in a statement.

According to the statement, "the session's agenda includes a number of topical political issues, especially the latest developments in the Palestinian cause and in many Arab countries, such as Syria, Libya and Yemen, the fight against terrorism and efforts to make the Middle East a region free of weapons of mass destruction".

Algeria will seize this opportunity to "reiterate its consistent positions on Arab issues, mainly its continued support for the Palestinian cause, and to present its peaceful approach based on dialogue and political solutions to the crises that some sister countries are experiencing, while rejecting foreign interference."

Algeria will also call for the "adoption of a common Arab action methodology underpinned by bases meeting the requirements of the current stage."

Minister Lamamra will hold a series of bilateral talks with some of his Arab counterparts about the strengthening of cooperation on several Arab, regional and international issues.
