Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada Colindres and his Algerian counterpart, Sabri Boukadoum, met today in Algiers to review bilateral relations and strengthen cooperation in economic and cultural matters.
In a joint press conference, the Nicaraguan Foreign Minister described as “rich conversation” the meeting he had with his Algerian colleague and stressed the need to “strengthen relations and cooperation between the two countries.”
In this regard, Colindres expressed the willingness of his country to strengthen its bilateral relations with Algeria in the different areas as well as the consolidation of the “historical and friendly” links that exist between the two countries.
The conversations also focused on the commercial and investment aspects, as well as cultural exchanges.
The two parties highlighted “the need to strengthen the context of the right of self-determination of peoples and of non-interference in the internal affairs of countries.”
Colindres stressed the “convergence” of both States on respect for International Law and its compliance to contribute to the restoration of regional and world peace.
As a result of this good harmony, he invited the Algerian official to make an official visit to the Central American country in the next few days in the framework of strengthening bilateral relations.
On the other hand, Boukadoum described the meeting as “opportunity” to promote meetings between the different institutions and official bodies responsible for economic and commercial cooperation as well as businessmen and chambers of commerce.
“Geographical distance cannot in any case be an obstacle to the development of bilateral relations,” the foreign minister insisted.
The Nicaraguan minister was received by the country’s president, Abdelmadjid Tebboun, at the headquarters of the Presidency of the Republic, to which he conveyed “cordial greetings” from President Daniel Ortega.
“We have explored the different ways and means of strengthening the relations of solidarity and fraternity between the governments and peoples of Algeria and Nicaragua,” the Nicaraguan minister told local press.
