According to a statement released Wednesday by the Algerian Ministry of Energy and Mines, Turkey and Algeria discussed new cooperation projects between the two countries in the energy sector.
After the 11th Term Meeting of the Turkey-Algeria Joint Economic Commission, the two ministers attended the signing ceremony of the protocols and agreements.
The first of the six agreements between the two countries was signed in the capital, Algeria, with the participation of two ministers.
Algeria’s energy minister Mohamed Arkab stated that the other five agreements are about to be completed and will be signed at the first meeting of the high-level Cooperation Council chaired by the presidents of the two countries.
The two sides stressed the importance of the work of the eleventh joint Turkish-Algerian session, which began on Wednesday in Algiers at the level of experts from both countries.
The Algerian and Turkish ministers underlined the opportunities and possibilities for investments and partnerships in the energy sector, particularly in the field of hydrocarbons, the development of the petrochemical industry, and the production and transmission of electricity.
They also discussed other aspects of cooperation related to the exchange of experiences, investment opportunities, and partnerships offered by the mining sector in Algeria, particularly in the field of research, exploration, the exploitation, and production of mineral materials.
