On the occasion of the 68th Algeria’s National Day Celebration The Ambassador of Algeria H.E. Mr. Belkacem Zeghmati, hosted a reception at Diplomat Hotel Prague.
Here are selected sections of H.E. Mr. Belkacem Zeghmati speech at the event:
The first of November 1954, and related events in Algeria, on the internal and external levels, was a historical and articulated turning point that changed radically and deeply the history course of the Algerian people.
My country, Algeria, since its restoration of its full national sovereignty, has been working hard to continue the battle of development and construction, and as an active member of the international community, has never spared any effort to contribute to achieving international peace and security around the world. The Algerian diplomacy, thanks to its historical depth and long experience, has never contributed to the exacerbation of disputes between countries, peoples and nations. On the contrary, it always stands at the same distance from the parties to disputes, calling each time to give priority to dialogue and negotiation as a civilized manner in the sense of resolving disputes and avoiding all forms of violence and use of force.
