Lamamra: Algeria to pursue its efforts for Palestinian national unity
Algeria will intensify its consultative meetings and efforts to unite the Palestinians, Lamamra says.
Algeria's Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra briefed his Arab counterparts on the pre-Arab summit preparations and his country’s strained efforts to ensure its success.
Lamamra stressed that this issue is highly important for the Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, who expressed his desire to hold a summit that would bring Arab countries together.
The Minister confirmed that Algeria will intensify its consultative meetings and its efforts to unite the Palestinians and strengthen Palestinian national unity.
“We will announce, during the official ministerial meeting in Cairo next March, the date of the summit following the completion of ongoing consultations with Arab countries”, Lamamra added.
On January 23, Lamamra said rumors that the 31st Arab League Summit has been delayed are misleading, stressing “no date has yet been set for the summit."
The Palestine summit
On Saturday, the delegation of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) told Al Mayadeen that "Algeria was keen on the success of the Palestinian meeting."
The PFLP-GC, in a visit to Algeria, said that "Algeria worked with integrity so that dialogue would be a basis for a Palestinian-Palestinian agreement later," noting that "brothers in Algeria have confirmed that they will not announce any final decision now. They need to be completely certain that the parties are ready to abide by what is agreed upon."
It is worth mentioning that Al Mayadeen has lately obtained a document of the Algerian government's plan of action for the upcoming Arab summit, which it decided to consider as the Palestine Summit to heal the rift in the wall of joint Arab action.
The document stressed that Algeria will put effort to unite the Arab ranks, spread the spirit of joint action, and return Syria to the Arab League.
