Algerian Interior Minister Brahim Merad said that the two fixed joint border crossings with Mauritania will open “soon.”
The two countries had previously announced that the border crossings would start operating in October 2023.
At the end of his visit to Tindouf, Merad said that the progress of works at the two Algerian-Mauritanian border crossings has exceeded 99%, and therefore will be soon delivered.
He said the two crossings are highly necessary for trade exchanges between Algeria and Mauritania.
The Algerian government has a plan to develop trade with countries that share borders with Algeria, especially Tunisia, Libya and Mauritania.
