Provisional Government of the Algerian Republic's diplomacy, both revolutionary and modern

Foreign Minister Abdelkader Messahel on Wednesday described the diplomacy led by the Provisional Government of the Algerian Republic (GPRA) as "revolutionary" and "modern," having empowered Algeria to become "an influential actor" "in the defence of the founding principles of justice and stability.

Speaking on the occasion of the National Liberation Front party’s celebration of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the GPRA, Messahel said that "the diplomacy conducted by the GPRA has been a revolutionary diplomacy but at the same time it had the characteristics of modern diplomacy,”

This diplomacy was founded on a careful evaluation of objectives and means, and an effective management of the (weak-strong) equation in the fight against colonial forces and positioning in the international balance of forces.

This method allowed "the elaboration of a clear approach, and the development and the implementation of independent Algeria’s foreign policy" besides "the strategic approach that allowed Algeria to be and remain an influential actor in the defence of the founding principles of justice, stability and the coherence of the international order, especially the principle of the peoples’ right to self-determination" as well as "the politics of training that has allowed the emergence of a real school of national diplomacy.”
