Wednesday, 18 November 2015

Prime Minister Abdelamalek Sellal highlighted Tuesday in Algiers the need to resort to the UN Security Council to deal with the terrorist threat.


"We must squarely resort to the UN Security Council. It is necessary that the world deals with this issue (fight against terrorism)," he stressed after signing the condolences register at the Embassy of France in Algeria following the terrorist attacks in Paris.


He added that terrorism "takes advantages of the virtual world," stressing that "when you study, you realize that most of terrorists are recruited on the internet."


For his part, the ambassador of France to Algeria, Bernard Emie, said that "we were very sensitive to the message of President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika to the French President Francois Hollande," stressing the "excellent" exchanges between the two countries "to work for common goals".


The French capital Paris was hit Friday night by a series of terrorist attacks, killing at least 129 people.
