ALGIERS - 1 January 2021: Egypt's Ambassador to Algeria Ayman Moshrafa said on Friday that he is looking forward to developing Egyptian-Algerian relations in 2021.
In statements to MENA, Moshrafa lauded ties between the two countries in all fields during 2020, pointing out that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi met his Algerian counterpart Abdelmadjid Tebboune more than one time in 2020 on the sidelines of African and international conferences and summits that showed that the Egyptian and Algerian leaders shared identical views on the different matters.
President Sisi phoned Tebboune on Thursday to congratulate him on returning home after being treated from coronavirus in Germany, Moshrafa noted.
The ambassador underlined that the call touched on the bilateral cooperation against the pandemic and the latest regional developments, especially the Libyan crisis, over which they agreed on intensifying coordination within the coming period to restore security and stability in the African country.
He also pointed to Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry's two visits to Algiers in January.
Moshrafa also said that the Egyptian companies in Algeria continue their success here, including Elsewedy Electric Company, which opened a factory here and exported its products to Western Africa and Europe, as well as Petrojet, which sets up projects in favor of Algeria's Sonatrach.
Arab Contractors and Hassan Allam companies are establishing major projects in many Algerian provinces, he added.
Regarding the coronavirus crisis, he pointed out that the embassy follows up the Egyptian community's conditions, saying that many flights had been operated to bring Egyptian citizens home.
He also pointed to the embassy's role in holding the parliamentary and Senate elections in Algeria.
