On Saturday 12 October 2019, Algeria reiterated its "categorical" rejection of "attacks, in all the circumstances on States’ sovereignty," expressing its "full solidarity" with the Syrian State.
Algeria, through the foreign ministry’s General Secretary, Rachid Beladehane, participated in an Arab League Council urgent meeting on the situation of Syria.
Algeria "followed with profound concern the serious events that occurred in the north of Syria," said Mr Rachid Beladehane, reiterating Algeria’s "categorical rejection of attacks on States’ sovereignty."
“Algeria reaffirms its full solidarity with Syria and reiterates its attachment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of this country," he added.
For the foreign ministry’s General Secretary, "military option has never helped to settle international crises. In the contrary, it only complicates the situation and the biggest losers, in such tragic situations, remain the unarmed civilians."
Algeria welcomed the progress achieved recently following the conclusion of the agreement on the creation of the Constitutional Committee, which gave a glimpse of hope to privilege the political solution, as advocated by my country since the outbreak of the crisis," said Beladehane, regretting that the recent developments "caused a setback in our efforts."
