Algeria, US key counterterrorism partner, says US Department of State

DIA-07 avril 2017: Algeria is a United States’ key partner in the security field, Justin Siberell, the acting coordinator for Counterterrorism in the Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT) at the U.S. Department of State, said Thursday in Washington.

In an address at the end of the fourth annual bilateral dialogue between Algeria and the United States on security and the fight against terrorism, held Thursday in Washington, DC, Siberell said the discussions with the Algerian delegation, led by Minister of Maghreb Affairs, African Union and Arab League Abdelkader Messahel, were fruitful.

They were an opportunity to exchange views on security and the fight against the terror threat.

The US official said the fourth session focused on bilateral relations, but also international issues, adding that « Algeria is a US key partner and we appreciate our key partners to face cross-border challenges. »

Mentioning the spread of terrorism, which is an increasingly growing challenge for governments, Siberell said his country seeks partners like Algeria, « which has a deep experience in the fight against terrorism, compared to most if not all the other countries. »
