ALGIERS – Sunday, 09 October 2022 (APS) – The minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, stressed Sunday the achievements of Algerian diplomacy under the leadership of President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune, and its determined contribution to the construction process of the New Algeria.

“It is our duty to celebrate this historic day devoted to Algeria’s return to international scene, after a long colonial night, taking pride in the achievements of the Algerian diplomacy that has earned its credentials today under the leadership of President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune,” Lamamra said in an address on the National Diplomacy Day.

The foreign policy chief added that Algerian diplomacy “contributes with determination to the construction process of the New Algeria, drawing on the principles of its Founding Charter, the Declaration of 1 November 1954.”

On this occasion, the minister conveyed to the personnel of the ministry of Foreign Affairs, the congratulations of President Tebboune, who “encouraged them to remain faithful to the vow and make greater efforts in terms of diplomatic action which, he said, is one of the front lines in the defence of Algeria’s principles and interests.

The National Diplomacy Day “is a major opportunity to celebrate our country’s diplomacy that has maintained its revolutionary character, even after Algeria’s accession to the United Nations, on 8 October 1962.”

He added that the Algerian diplomacy was shaped through the epics of the Algerian people during the Revolution for national liberation (1954-1962).
