Algerian-Palestinian meeting in New York

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune met with his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmoud Abbas, today, Monday, in New York City.
The Algerian newspaper An-Nahar said that Tebboune received Abbas at his residence in New York City. The meeting was also attended by Algerian Foreign Minister Ahmed Attaf and Algeria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Ammar Ben Jama.
The meeting of the two leaders comes after Tebboune came to New York to participate in the seventy-eighth (78) regular session of the United Nations General Assembly.
Earlier, last July, Algeria announced a financial contribution of $30 million to support reconstruction efforts in the Palestinian city of Jenin after the military operations carried out by Israel in the city.
According to a statement by the Algerian presidency, President Abdelmadjid Tebboune decided “to grant this financial contribution with the aim of assisting in the reconstruction of Jenin, after the barbaric and criminal attack launched by the Israeli occupation forces on the city and its camp in the West Bank.”
The statement also added that this aggression caused the death of many innocent Palestinians and the destruction of infrastructure, forcing many Palestinians to leave their homes and search for safe shelters.
The statement expressed Algeria’s permanent solidarity “with the struggle of the Palestinian people living under Israeli occupation, and calls for the realization of their legitimate national rights, including the establishment of their independent state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.”
