Q. What is France’s response to the recall of Algeria’s ambassador to Paris following the airing by French networks of documentaries on the Hirak movement?
A. All media outlets enjoy complete editorial independence. It is protected by the law in France.
In keeping with the deep and longstanding relationship between our two countries, to which we attach the greatest importance, France fully respects Algeria’s sovereignty.
On that basis, we intend to continue expanding our bilateral relations.
