This hypocrisy is disgraceful for an institution that pretended for years to reject all foreign involvement in African affairs. If President Macron “misspoke”, it is the responsibility of the Élysée Palace or the Foreign Minister to issue a correction. Algeria has repeatedly denied any involvement in the on-going French military operations in the Sahel. As the raging social protest movement, called Hirak in Arabic, starts to threaten the military installed government of President Tebboune, the ANP is expanding its cooperation with the French military in Africa. Algeria’s predicaments are making the North African nation a liability on the Sahel and the Maghreb countries.
