MoS Muraleedharan to visit Algeria to enhance bilateral ties

New Delhi, Sep 14 (UNI) Days after the navies of India and Algeria carried out their maiden naval exercise off the Algerian coast, Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan is to pay a three-day official visit to the north African country beginning September 15, in a visit expected to provide fresh impetus to the bilateral ties.

During the visit, his first visit to the country, the MoS will call on the Prime Minister of Algeria Aimene Benabderrahmane and hold talks with Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra and other dignitaries on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.
