Israeli FM’s statement on Algeria-Iran ties contains “accurate information” – Israeli Foreign Ministry
The statement by Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid at a conference held two weeks ago in Morocco on Algeria’s ties with Iran contains “accurate information,” spokesperson for the Israeli foreign ministry for Arab media Hassan Kaabia said.
“Algeria has become, since the beginning of the Arab Spring, a passageway for terrorist movements, at the instigation of Iran,” Kaabia said in a statement to the website “Madar21”.
“Algerian-Iranian cooperation is of concern to us, especially that Iran aims to infiltrate all countries”, the spokesman underlined, noting that the Iranian actions in the region of the Middle East are at the origin of the prevailing destruction and terrorism, particularly in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
He also noted that “Iran continues to interfere in the affairs of African countries, including Algeria”.
Regarding Algeria’s announcement to sever diplomatic relations with Morocco, Kaabia said “this is a matter between two countries linked by borders and ancestral ties”.
