HE Mr. Abdelaziz  Al-Sabaa, Ambassador of the Democratic Republic of Algeria to the State of Qatar, assured that his country called for resolving the crisis through dialogue since the first day of Qatar blockade.

On the sidelines of a seminar hosted by the Diplomatic Institute on Tuesday, on February 27 under the title" Threats to Peace and Security in Sahel Region", and attended by HE Mrs. Nadia Al-Shaibi, Assistant Director of the Diplomatic Institute and a group of Qatari diplomats, he said: the Gulf countries are one family, therefore, the crisis should be solved through dialogue, and Algeria supported the efforts of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to reach a solution that preserves the sovereignty of brotherly countries.

HE said that his country has managed, through national reconciliation, to win over the plight of terrorism, however, still there are some pockets that the state is getting rid of them. "Terrorism has cost Algeria 200,000 victims, and  20 billion dollars", HE added.

This is what spurred Algerians to back their leadership to achieve national reconciliation, underscoring the great role played by Algerian women in realizing these goals. Hence, spared Algeria the consequences of state collapse alike in Libya and the chaos in Mali.

He referred to the situation in the countries that stretching from Mauritania to Sudan as characterized by old crises dating back to the 1960s of the last century, which emerged immediately after independence, as well as in the southern Algerian Sahara that includes Mauritania, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Chad and Libya.

These countries counter great challenges, attributing  the reasons to the French Colonialism, which has marginalized and impoverished these areas, then, deprived from the means of development. Moreover, the absence of proper governance  and predictability that contributes to stability.He reviewed the efforts exerted by Algeria to help these countries in facing the consequences of chaos in neighboring countries and to combat drugs smuggling.

The Algerian ambassador pointed out that his country has offered rapprochement for the situation in Libya, but the military intervention has undermined the state.

"The situation in Libya has become very complicated. However, we keep the door  open to all parties as we believe that dialogue is the only way out, nevertheless, we are not ready to deal with terrorist groups", he said. He praised Tunisian's experience and said that the Brotherhood in Tunisia had found the right way not to allow external interference, as they believe it only exacerbates crises.

"The Algerian woman was a significant part of our strength during the difficult time, and contributed to the achievement of reconciliation, which had a clear impact in lessening terrorism.

The Algerian Ambassador expressed his sincere thanks to the Diplomatic Institute for organizing this symposium to exchange ideas and opinions on a number of important issues.
