Beirout, 25/06/2015 (SPS) .- in a relationship between two such important partners as Europe and the Arab world, the principles relating to self-determination of peoples, and the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force, which is perfectly applicable to the Palestinian issue and the decolonization of Western Sahara, must be respected."


Speaking at the plenary of the conference on the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) review, Lamamra said that Algeria "seeks to encourage alternative ideas that would target destiny, prosperity and public security and suggested, for this purpose, the idea of ​​the possibility of creating a common area of ​​security and shared prosperity."


"It is a common Euro-Mediterranean zone that reflects a new philosophy and not a simple adaptation of what exists and which has reached its limits," he added, arguing that this common space of peace, solidarity and shared prosperity, should "involve sustained work for peaceful settlement of conflicts and crises, and even prevention against them."
