Algeria's Prime Minister Voices Security Concerns Over Morocco-Israel Rapprochement

 The recently-signed agreement on normalization of relations between Morocco and Israel points to the latter's pursuit to anchor itself in Northern Africa, Algerian Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad said on Saturday.

Morocco and Israel agreed to establish formal diplomatic relations this past Thursday, as announced by US President Donald Trump. As part of the deal, the United States agreed to recognize Morocco's sovereignty over the disputed Western Sahara region.

    "[Israel's] intention and desire to establish presence near our borders grows more obvious. Today it has become a proven reality," Djerad said at a history conference in Algiers, as quoted by Algerian news agency La Patrie.

Opining that Algeria was facing threats both from inside and outside, the prime minister urged citizens to "stand up to multiple dangers facing our country," as quoted in the report.

Djerad spoke at a conference commemorating the 1960 decolonization demonstrations in Algiers that had led to independence from France.

  1. L'Algérie a dénoncé, samedi 12 décembre, des "manoeuvres étrangères" visant à la déstabiliser et pointé du doigt Israël, après la reconnaissance par les États-Unis de la souveraineté marocaine sur le Sahara occidental, en contrepartie d'une normalisation des relations du Maroc avec l'État hébreu.

    "Il y a des manoeuvres étrangères qui visent à déstabiliser l'Algérie. Il y a maintenant une volonté de 'l'entité sioniste' (ndlr: Israël) de se rapprocher de nos frontières", a accusé le Premier ministre algérien, Abdelaziz Djerad, dans la première réaction de son pays à la décision américaine.

    L'annonce surprise jeudi du président sortant, Donald Trump, de reconnaître la souveraineté marocaine sur l'ancienne colonie espagnole disputée, en échange de l'engagement de Rabat à normaliser ses relations avec Israël, a été aussitôt rejetée par les indépendantistes du Front Polisario soutenus par l'Algérie.
