The president of Algeria, Abdelmayid Tebune, received his counterpart from Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, on Thursday, who sees in the strengthening of ties with the North African country a way to continue advancing towards a "multipolar world", far from the influence from the United States.
The Venezuelan president's trip comes in the midst of a diplomatic crisis between the North African country and Spain, after Algeria broke the friendship and cooperation treaty yesterday after the turn in the government's policy regarding the Sahara.
"We are in the era of building a new world, and Venezuela remains at the forefront of this challenge," Maduro proclaimed on Twitter, where he already anticipated a "fruitful" meeting with Tebune and "concrete results" of a visit that it will last two days.
Maduro had already signed several agreements in Turkey with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, related to tourism, agriculture and the economy, also within an evident common interest in strengthening ties. For Maduro, the Turkish scale was "a complete success."
