Algeria, through its Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra, on Tuesday announced the severance of its relations with Morocco.
It’s now official. Algeria has just severed its relations with Morocco, a week after the meeting of the High Security Council which decided to review relations between the two countries and accused Morocco of hostile acts.
The announcement of the severance of relations with Morocco was made on Tuesday by Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra. The latter was reading a statement on behalf of President Tebboune at a press conference.
Algeria reproaches the kingdom in particular for the support given by the representative of Morocco to the UN Omar Hilale for the self-determination of Kabylia, the rapprochement between the kingdom and Israel, a supposed support from Morocco to the MAK and to the Islamist movement Rachad, the Pegasus affair or the Moroccan Sahara issue.
“In any case, Algeria refuses the logic of a fait accompli”, Lamamra indicated in particular, before adding: “For all these reasons Algeria has decided to sever its diplomatic relations with Morocco from today”.
