Algeria, by carrying out a “review” of all the agreements in all areas it has with Spain, has openly threatened sanctions against a sovereign state, the Kingdom of Spain in this case.
This bravado, one more, comes in response to the historical change of position of the Madrid government regarding the Sahara. In any case, this was declared yesterday in Rome by the Secretary General of the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of the National Community Abroad, Chakib Rachid Kaïd.
This announcement, “look for the intruder”, was intended to force the head of the Spanish executive Pedro Sanchez who “appeared” today before the Spanish deputies to renounce his recent position on the resumption of diplomatic relations with Morocco. In vain, moreover, since the position of the head of the Spanish executive to support the Moroccan autonomy plan, was reiterated as being “the most serious, realistic and credible basisto resolve the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.
A position written by Pedro Sanchez and addressed to the Sovereign and officially declared by the Spanish Foreign Minister. Indeed, on March 18, José Manuel Albares solemnly announced “Today, we are entering a new phase in our relations with Morocco and definitively ending a crisis with a strategic partner.“. The news was badly received in Algeria, so badly that in the East of Eden, the ambassador was recalled to Madrid.
Since the “sanctions” on Spain have not stopped “raining”. Let’s see ! What does the Algiers regime have other than gas to punish Madrid? From the junk. The senile junta for ten days suspended maritime repatriations to Oran and Ghazaouat of its constituents who illegally immigrated to Spain, and limited the air frequencies to Algiers of the Spanish company Iberia to a single weekly round trip. Algiers will be able to bulge its chest, it excludes that there are immediate consequences in the sale of gas and oil. And for good reason, it would be anger to renew them when they expire (2030).
Moreover, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Algeria hinted as much when he called on Spanish political leaders to reconsider their position. “We will show that our Spanish friends will take the necessary measures.”stressed Chakib Rachid Kaid, saying he did not want to use the term “treason “but calling Madrid’s abrupt comeback “surprise” and of “great disappointment ». The senile regime of Algeria can only act on a surplus of gas, but not on that agreed in the agreements and which run until 2030. In the case, it is Italy, which can take advantage of this crisis between Algeria and Spain.
During his trip to Rome, where he met the Italian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Chakib Rachid Kaïd said he was convinced that the conditions for a revival of relations between Algeria and Italy “are met”, replying that the Algeria’s wish “is to further strengthen the strategic and privileged nature of bilateral relations”.
As for those of Algeria with Spain, they enter a zone of turbulence wanted and desired by the junta of Algiers. But it is not in the interest of the latter who should curb her enthusiasm and much more measure in her reaction by implementing other more skilful means to achieve her ends. The question of the export of energy products such as gas does not obey the rules of transient bad temper of the senile Algerian authorities to reassure the few customers who still dare to trust them, especially in this world situation of crisis that all, we cross including Algeria”.
