Another episode of hostility: Algeria bans interaction with Moroccan firms

It seems clear that the Algerian hostility towards Morocco will not end soon, in the light of the continuing diplomatic success of the Kingdom ahead of Algeria, notably in the Sahara file.

Another episode of Algerian hostility, appeared in a surprising statement issued by the Algerian president, Abdelmajjid Tebboune, on Sunday, ordering Algerian companies to end all contracts and cooperation with their Moroccan counterparts.

According to Algeria’s local media, the President attacked the Algerian Insurance and Reinsurance Company (CAAR) and the Algerian Insurance Company (SAA) for their business links with Moroccan firms.

Algerian president considers that cooperation with Moroccan companies risks putting sensitive information at the disposal of foreign entities that oppose the Algerian interests and threaten the country’s security.

The president's statement gave a period of 10 days for the companies to end all collaboration with Moroccan companies.

According to several observers, this Algerian hostility step comes as a reaction to the latest intelligence failure in front of Morocco, when Algeria failed to transfer Polisario’s leader, Brahim Ghali, secretly to Spain for treatment without Morocco knows.

Morocco’s intelligence succeeded to discover the operation, therefore, it put Algeria and Spain in an embarrassing situation, especially that Brahim Ghali is wanted for justice in Spain for human rights violations accusations.

The relation between Spain and Morocco is now in crisis, as Morocco has announced its refusal to the Spanish involvement in the Case of Polisario leader, while the relation with Algeria has already been in tens and hostile.
