Algeria's Tebboune: Palestine is a national cause for Algeria
Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune addresses, during a government meeting, the Libyan crisis and stresses that Palestine is a national cause for Algeria.
Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune stressed that "Palestine is the core issue" for his country, pointing out that there is no "Algerian boy or elderly person who does not support Palestine."
"Palestine is a national cause for Algeria, and we do not accept colonization" in it, adding that "we will continue supporting it even if it was colonized by the world's strongest power. Palestine is for the Palestinians, not for others," Tebboune said.
"We fought colonialism and pushed the convoys of martyrs, and we cannot accept a country be colonized; we will fight colonialism wherever it is," he stressed.
It is noteworthy that all Palestinian factions will participate in a meeting in Algeria, in the first week of October, in preparation for the upcoming Arab summit, which the Algerian government called this year the Palestine Summit, with the aim of uniting the Arab ranks in support of the Palestinian cause.
We will defend the wealth of the Libyan people
Tebboune touched on the Libyan crisis, stressing that his country supports international legitimacy in Libya "as long as the legitimacy of the ballot boxes is absent."
"Libya has been in crisis for 11 years. Today, we reiterate our words, and we will not be silent; we will defend the wealth of the Libyan people, and we will stand in solidarity with Libya until it restores stability," he added.
The Algerian president affirmed that his country "stands by Libya, even if it requires us to intervene, and we will not remain idly by."
It is noteworthy that Libya is witnessing political, military, and economic conflicts, especially after the parties failed, last December, to hold parliamentary and presidential elections, which were previously agreed upon, after the Geneva Agreement, from which the Presidential Council and the Government of National Unity emerged, under the auspices of the United Nations.
