POLITICAL ACTIVITIES

TUNISIAN PRESIDENT TRAVELS TO ALGERIA FOR HIS FIRST STATE VISIT

The president of the Republic, Mr. Abdelaziz Bouteflika, held talks on Feb. 5, in Algiers, with his Tunisian counterpart Béji Caïd Essebsi, who arrived in Algeria for a state visit.

After his meeting with President Bouteflika, President Essebsi declared that his visit to Algeria was "excellent in all areas."

He added that each visit he makes to Algeria turns out to be "better than the preceding one in terms of understanding and results," stressing that Algeria and Tunisian enjoy "privileged and exceptional relations, thereby positively impacting the region and its stability as well as the stability of the two sisterly countries."

In that respect, the Tunisian president added that the Algerian-Tunisian bilateral relations "will clearly confirm" that the security of Tunisia and Algeria are intimately connected, and added that a "quasi-total understanding between the two sides" has emerged from his talks with Algerian officials.

Addressing bilateral cooperation, he announced that the Algerian-Tunisian Joint Commission will hold its 20th session in Algeria in the coming days and added that "everything that has been agreed on shall be implemented on the ground."

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON VIOLENT EXTREMISM CONVENED IN WASHINGTON: ALGERIA

REPRESENTED BY MR. MESSAHEL

The International Conference on Violent Extremism held on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015, in Washington offered Algeria an opportunity to reiterate the effectiveness of its vision about how to respond to terrorism. That response needs to be based on a strategy including namely a policy of national reconciliation and de-radicalization programs, Algerian officials have insisted.

In remarks delivered before delegates from more than 75 countries and international organizations taking part in the international meeting, Minister Delegate for Maghreb and African Affairs Abdelkader Messahel underscored the diversity of measures taken by Algeria to combat the phenomenon of terrorism, based on its conviction that security means alone remain insufficient to resolve a phenomenon as complex as terrorism.

In his presentation on the Algerian experience in combating terrorism, Mr. Messahel focused on the de-radicalization efforts and other measures deployed by Algeria and included a consolidation of the national religious referent through a promotion of authentic Islamic culture, which advocates humanism, tolerance and harmony.

That approach, said Mr. Messahel, helped support other fundamental axes of the strategy used to combat the scourge of terrorism, starting with "the action led by our security forces in strict observance of the laws of the Republic and the commitments of the state in terms of protection of human rights and fundamental liberties" and with the significant implementation of the policy of national reconciliation which helped "preserve the coherence of harmony of the Algerian society."

The Algerian vision was well-received within the international community, considering the overwhelming reaction among delegates who agreed that resolving such a complex issue required focusing on the roots of the problem.

CULTURE

ASSIA DJEBBAR: A LIFE DEVOTED TO LITERATURE AND LIBERTIES (TRIBUTE)

The famous and celebrated Algerian Francophone writer Assia Djebbar passed away on Feb. 6, 2015, at age 78, having tirelessly advocated throughout her life for Algerian literature and, through a rich and varied body of work, for the cause of freedom in general and for the empowerment of women, in particular.

Born on June 30, 1936, in the coastal city of Cherchell (the ancient Caesarea of Roman times), near Algiers, Fatma-Zohra Imalayène (sometimes spelled Imalayen), who took on the nom de plume Assia Djebbar, had started writing very early, already expressing her feminist stance and voicing her commitment to the Algerian national cause for independence, publishing in 1957 at age 21 a first novel (La Soif, meaning The Thirst, published in English under the title "The Mischief"), then a second (Les Impatients), a year later.

From then on, she wrote some twenty successful novels, which were translated into as many languages. Throughout, she continued to express her passion for history and literature teaching in Algiers and overseas (she was a Silver Chair of Francophone literature at NYU and Director of the Center for French and Francophone Studies at Louisiana State University). Assia Djebbar also tried her hand with much success at moviemaking, directing two movies devoted to women's issues, including "La Nouba des femmes du Mont Chenoua" (1977) and "La Zerda ou les chants de l'oubli" (1979). Her first movie was awarded the Venice International Critic Prize in 1979.

"La Zerda ou les chants de l'oubli" (Zerda and The Songs of Forgetting) won the Best Historic Film Award at the 1983 Berlin Film Festival.

Her 1991 novel "Loin de Médine" (English title: Far from Medina) will symbolize for a long time the permanence of her advocacy for women's rights. On June 16, 2005, she manifested her own emancipation, becoming the first Arab and African woman to be elected to the French Academy, a few years after her induction into the Belgian Royal Academy.

Long thought to be a perfect contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature, Assia Djebbar remained bound to her country, both in body and spirit. Over time she has dedicated several of her novels to the history of Algeria, retracing the colonial era, the years of independence, and the dark times brought on the country by terrorism in the 1990s.

Her multifaceted activism and dedication to issues she deemed essential were very much reflected in her style of literature and works, including in "Les enfants du nouveau monde" published in 1962 and translated in English under the title "Children of the New World", "Les alouettes naïves" (1967), "Femmes d'Alger dans leur appartement" (English title: Women of Algiers in Their Apartment), published in 1980, and "L'amour, la fantasia" published in 1985 and translated in English under the title "Fantasia: An Algerian Cavalcade", "Le blanc de l'Algérie" in 1996 ("Algerian White" in English), and in 2002 "La femme sans sépulture".

A prolific writer, Assia Djebbar excelled in literary, cinematographic and stage creative work and, said many among those who knew her socially or as readers, was perpetually seeking innovation through a humanistic vision of life on earth.

Numerous awards, including the 1996 Neustadt International Prize for Literature (Germany) and the Yourcenar Prize (France), consecrated her national and international reputation. Her last book ("Nulle part dans la maison de mon père" (Nowhere in My Father's House - - 2008), her first book published in Arabic, received extensive coverage in Europe, the Middle East and elsewhere around the world as a "unique and rare voice" in the world of culture.

Deeply attached to her country, she asked to be buried in her place of birth - Cherchell.
