Algeria does not renounce its commitment to supply Spain

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said on Saturday his country would not abandon its commitment to supply gas to Spain despite a diplomatic row with the European country over Western Sahara.

“We assure the Spanish friends, the Spanish people, that Algeria will never abandon its commitment to supply Spain with gas under any circumstances,” Tebboune said in an interview broadcast on state television on Saturday evening.

Algeria announced in March that it was recalling its ambassador to Madrid for consultations after Spain backed Morocco’s plan for autonomy in Western Sahara, which is being rejected by the Algerian-backed Polisario Front independence movement. .
