Britain, Algeria boost counter-terrorism strategy

Britain and Algeria will step up cooperation on security with the creation of a committee on counter-terrorism, a British minister said last week.

“We face a common threat from Al-Qaeda and in order to counter this there is a need for the nations to work more effectively together…,” said Alistair Burt, the British Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, in a statement.

“The bilateral committee is a manifestation of the determination of both the UK and Algeria to confront terrorism,” he said, adding that it would involve cooperation on training and intelligence sharing with a first meeting due to take place in London in two weeks.
