The Algerian Head of State, Abdelmadjid Tebdoune, sent a message to his Congolese counterpart, Félix Tshisekedi Tshilombo. This message was carried by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community abroad of Algeria, Ramtane Lamamra. Having arrived in Kinshasa on Friday, 10 September 2021, the latter was received by the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Christophe Lutundula Apala, after having been received at N’Djili International Airport by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Samy Adubango Awotho.
His presence in the Congolese capital was explained by the head of Algerian diplomacy as a valuable opportunity to take stock of issues of common interest affecting the African continent and an opportunity to examine the prospects of intensifying the cooperation relations between Algeria and the DRC.
It is precisely around these questions that the exchanges between Ramtane Lamamra and Christophe Lutundula took place.
They also discussed topics related to the Presidency of the Democratic Republic of Congo at the African Union. In this regard, it should be noted that Kinshasa and Algiers are committed to the integration of the African continent.
Ramtane Lamamra expressed the hope that Africa would make “more progress in economic integration, in achieving the objectives of the continental free trade area, and in peace and security issues.”
