Algeria: Bouteflika to Host French President

French President Francois Hollande is expected to arrive in Algeria next Wednesday, AFP reported on Saturday (December 15th). Hollande will be accompanied by a dozen government ministers. The agenda includes a meeting with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, a speech before parliament and a visit to the university in Tlemcen.

"We hope that the visit of Francois Hollande will mark a new stage in our bilateral relations which are expected to deepen," Bouteflika said last week.
