Maduro heading to Algeria to discuss energy, non-aligned movement
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro will head to Algeria for an official visit to discuss the file of energy and non-aligned movement.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is expected to go on Thursday to Algeria on an official visit, Algerian media reported Wednesday.
"The energy file will be at the top of President Maduro's agenda with Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and senior Algerian officials," local media said.
The media sources pointed out that the Venezuelan president's visit to Algeria comes as part of a remarkable diplomatic movement by Algeria towards some important capitals, such as Rome and Ankara, as well as the expected visit to Beijing and Moscow in the upcoming period.
Maduro visited Algeria in September 2017, within the framework of continuous Algerian coordination and cooperation in the field of energy and the Non-Aligned Movement.
The Algerian capital is witnessing vigorous preparations to receive President Maduro, as its main streets are decorated with the Venezuelan flag. These preparations reflect the nature of the relationship that unites the two countries, especially since late President Hugo Chavez had a special appreciation for Algeria, its revolution, and its leaders.
Earlier in the day, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro paid an official visit to Turkey, where he was received by Turkish officials at the Ankara Esenboga Airport.
Maduro expressed his happiness to start his international tour, which is starting off from Turkey. He underlined his confidence that the two parties will strengthen the ties of union and cooperation between the Venezuelan and Turkish peoples.
