In his message congratulating the anniversary of the independence of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, President Rouhani expressed the hope that relations between the two countries would develop in all dimensions.
"I hope that given the historical background and potential of the two countries, we will see the development of relations in all bilateral, regional and international aspects," the Iranian president added.
In a relevant development in October 2019, President Hassan Rouhani and Algeria’s former interim President Abdul Qadir bin Saleh in a meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan, underlined the need to further broaden bilateral relations in different fields.
During the meeting on the sidelines of the 18th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit meeting in the Azeri capital city, President Rouhani and the Algerian interim president explored the avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating mutual cooperation in different political and economic fields.
During the meeting, the Iranian president said that Iran and Algeria have cordial relations, adding that the two countries should enhance economic and trade cooperation.
Bin Saleh, for his part, described the two countries as historic and strategic.
“I am happy that the two countries have common stances in most of the fields, which should lead to promotion of economic cooperation proportionate to the two countries' capabilities and capacities,” he added.
