ALGERIAN FM RECEIVED IN WINDHOEK BY NAMIBIAN PRESIDENT HAGE GEINGOB

WINDHOEK, -- Algerian Minister of State and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Ramtane Lamamra was received here Wednesday by Namibian President Hage Geingob.

Lamamra had earlier attended a meeting of the ministerial committee monitoring the implementation of the African Union's Agenda 2063, a 50-year initiative for the development of the continent.

"We have been granted an audience by Namibia's President, to whom I conveyed the greetings and the warm and friendly feelings of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and I also informed him of a certain number of information and analyses that the President instructed me to share with the Namibian President," said Lamamra after calling on President Geingob.

He added that he received in response a certain number of information and opinions that the Namibian leader asked him to convey to President Bouteflika.

He said the excellent state of relations at the political level between the two countries was underlined during the audience, and added that bilateral relations were reflected in a convergence of views at all the levels.

This, he added, "must result in concerted actions to give to this partnership an economic content, a mutually advantageous content in terms of investment, tarde and interactions of all sorts".

Lamamra said President Geingob confirmed the opening in July of an embassy of his country in Algiers. He underlined, in this regard, that the Embassy of Algeria in Windhoek had been operational since Namibia attained independence.
