U.S. Secretary of State calls for reopening Morocco-Algeria border
Washington, October 12, 2012 (MAP)
The U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, renewed, Friday in Washington, call for Morocco-Algeria border to be reopened, deploring the fact that the Maghreb is one of the “least integrated” regions in the world.
“Opening the border between Algeria and Morocco would be an important step in moving toward that integration,” Hillary said in an address during a conference on “The Maghreb in Transition: Seeking Stability in an Era of Uncertainty”.
She insisted that “one of our top priorities is helping nations trade more with each other,” adding that integration between Maghreb countries “will create new jobs for their citizens and markets for their products.”
