The visit of Tebboune, also the supreme chief of the armed forces and national defence minister, will last for two days, the Algerian presidency added.

Tebboune’s visit to Egypt will be the first for him as president since he assumed office late in 2019.

Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra paid an official visit to Egypt last week, during which he discussed boosting bilateral relations in meetings with President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.

Lamamra has also agreed with El-Sisi to continue extending support to Tunisian President Kais Saied and the measures he has adopted in the face of unrest in the country.

They also highlighted the importance of achieving stability and security and preserving the sovereignty and unity of Libya and its national institutions to end the presence of foreign troops and mercenaries in Libya.

Lamamra also paid an official visit to Egypt in July last year, conveying a message of “love and brotherhood” from Tebboune to El-Sisi.
