    Macron seeks ‘new relationship’ with former colony Algeria

    ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday that he hopes to “open a new chapter” in his country’s relationship with Algeria, one of its former colonies in Africa, by boosting security and economic cooperation.

    After arriving in Algiers for a one-day visit, Macron laid a wreath at the Martyrs’ Memorial, a monument commemorating the Algeria’s eight years of war with France that resulted in the country gaining independence in 1962 after 132 years under colonial rule.

     

    “It’s also a new chapter with this new Algerian generation who probably looks at France in a different way, who must also look at the promises of its own country and go and conquer a future which is not completely bright,” Macron said while exchanging a few words and shaking hands with many young Algerians during a walk in the center of the capital city.
