ALGIERS – Monday, 18 September 2023 (APS) – The president of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, is taking part from Monday in the high-level week of the 78th ordinary session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), the world’s most prestigious forum.


A highly anticipated meeting in an international context marked by multiple crises, especially the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global economy, the exacerbation of conflicts‎ against a backdrop of the polarization of the world, the climate emergency and the growing inequalities in terms of the quality of life between the populations of the developed countries and the rest of the world.

Indeed, the long list of the themes on the session’s agenda, about ten, shows the scope of the challenges‎ to be addressed by the leaders of the UN member countries.

Promotion of humanitarian law and international law, promotion of economic development and sustainable development, peacekeeping and maintaining international security, counterterrorism, Africa’s development, organizational issues and international financial institutions reform, to name only those issues, reveal the difficult task the world organization will have to deal with while its effectiveness and pertinence have been the subject of conflicting opinions for a few years, according to analysts and observers of the United Nations.

In this context, Algeria, through the president of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, is a voice of wisdom that should be listen to carefully and without a priori as through its immutable positions, mature proposals and recognized diplomatic actions, it brings a vision of neutrality and detachment which is essential for any effective decision-making.

Algeria is one of the main voices of non-aligned nations, of Africa, of the countries of the South, and is strongly committed to the sovereignty of the States as well as the legitimate rights of peoples.

Algeria, by complying with resolutions and its firm attachment to the implementation of decisions, was ranked in 2022 as a leader at the African and Arab levels in terms of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), goals that governments are called upon, in this summit, to act quickly to achieve.

In terms of international peace and security, Algeria has a clear position in favour of multilateralism and the settlement of conflicts, through non-violent and diplomatic voices and without any interference of foreign forces.

It is proved that its own reading of political and security crises is the wisest and the least damaging.

Should we recall its prior alerts with regards to Libya, Syria, or more recently Niger, as President Tebboune has proposed a roadmap of six points to settle the crisis in this neighboring country and prevent foreign military intervention, which would certainly have a devastating impact on the Sahel region.
