Algeria / Abdul-Razzaq bin Abdullah / Anatolia

Turkish Presidents Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Algerian Abdel Majid Taboun agreed on Tuesday evening to evacuate the Turks stranded in Algeria and their Algerian counterparts stuck in Turkey, starting next Friday, against the background of measures taken to combat the Corona virus.

The Algerian presidency said, in a statement, that the President of the Republic, Abdel Majid Taboun, made a phone call with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which they touched on “the situation in both countries, and it was agreed to cooperate to evacuate the stranded Algerian stranded in Turkey and the Turks stranded in Algeria, starting on Friday. ”

She explained that “the foreign and health ministers of the two countries have been assigned to supervise the implementation of the agreement.”

As of Tuesday evening, the virus had infected more than 848,000 people in 202 countries and territories, of whom more than 41,000 had died, and more than 176,000 had recovered.

The spread of the virus forced many countries to close the border, suspend flights, disrupt the study, impose a curfew, cancel numerous events, prevent public gatherings and close mosques and churches, to prevent the virus from spreading.

The Algerian presidency added that the two presidents, Tabun and Erdogan, also exchanged “views on developments in the situation in Libya.”

Libya, Algeria’s neighbor, is suffering from armed conflict, as Khalifa Haftar’s militia, the internationally recognized government, is fighting for legitimacy and power in the oil-rich country.
