July 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Prime Minister of Algeria, Aimene Benabderrahmane, has assured this Sunday that the country will develop development projects focused on Mali, Niger and Mauritania with the aim of combating illegal migration.
This measure will help to reduce migration from these countries and will reduce the impact on the host territories, as published by the Algerian news agency APS.
The Prime Minister has assured during a development and migration conference held in Rome (Italy) that it is a new opportunity to review Algeria’s approach towards illegal migration.
This new approach will allow African States to join development projects that create jobs and wealth and for which Algeria will allocate a billion dollars (about 899 million euros).
One of the main challenges for African countries to develop, according to Benabderrahmane, is the high percentages of debt in these countries, preventing them from finding financing for this type of project, and he has expressed his desire to see other governments follow the example of Algeria.
Regarding the treatment of migrants in the country, the head of government stressed that they receive them “with humanity and a duty of solidarity” towards Africans who suffer from a lack of “security and development.”
