2014/06/07

On June 6, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra of Algeria in Beijing. They signed The Five-Year Plan for China-Algeria Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation together.

Wang Yi appreciated the contributions Algeria has made to the sixth ministerial meeting of China-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF), and congratulated Algeria on its successful holding of the presidential election recently. Wang Yi said that Algeria has always occupied a prominent position in China's foreign relations. Early this year, China-Algeria relations were elevated to a comprehensive strategic partnership, which is the first comprehensive strategic partnership China has established with the Arab countries. Both sides should take this as an opportunity to push bilateral practical cooperation in various fields to enter a new stage.

Lamamra said that, the sixth ministerial meeting of CASCF was very successful in terms of high-level participation, consensuses reached and outcome documents, and it will become an important turning point in the history of Algeria-China relations. As Algeria-China relations have entered a new stage of comprehensive strategic cooperation, they are looking forward to the prospects of bilateral relations. Algeria is not only a member of the Arab states, but also a member of African countries, so it is ready to advance cooperation with China in two directions. Wang Yi expressed that he believes Algeria would make positive contributions to facilitating China's relations with the Arab and African countries.

The two Foreign Ministers agreed that on the basis of the joint declaration concerning the establishment of China-Algeria comprehensive strategic partnership jointly signed by the two heads of state, both sides should implement The Five-Year Plan for China-Algeria Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation, and promote specific bilateral cooperation in various fields including economy and trade, investment, energy and mineral resources, infrastructure construction, agriculture, science and technology, aerospace and people-to-people and cultural engagement, especially in fields that are much needed by the Algerian side and the Chinese side has advantages in, so as to realize complementary advantages as well as mutual benefits and win-win results.
