  • Description

    THE PRESIDENT OF THE ALGERIAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT, BENYOUSSEF BENKHEDDA, GAVE A PRESS CONFERENCE IN TUNIS OCTOBER 24TH, IN THE GRAND SALON OF THE HOTEL MAJESTIC. THE PRESS CONFERENCE WAS WELL ATTENDED BY INTERNATIONAL JOURNALISTS.

    AFTER AN OPENING IN WHICH HE DENOUNCED THE MILITARY AND POLICE REPRESSIVE MEASURES AGAINST THE ALGERIAN PEOPLE AS 'CHARACTERISTIC GENOCIDE', BENVOUSSEF BENKHEDDA SAID THE "PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT" WAS READY TO RESUME CONTACT WITH FRANCE WITH PRELIMINARY TALKS TO SEEK AGREEMENT ON 'THE PRINCIPLES, THE OUTLINES OF THE AGREEMENT AND THE DATE FOR THE PROCLAMATION OF INDEPENDENCE, AND THE CONCLUSION OF A CEASE FIRE'.

    BENYOUSSEF BENKHEDDA ADDED THAT IF THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT CONTINUED TO REGARD SELF-DETERMINATION AS THE BEST PATH TO PEACE IN ALGERIA, THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT WAS READY TO WORK FOR A PEACEFUL SOLUTION ON THAT BASIS.

    THE FRENCH AND ALGERIAN POINTS OF VIEW HAVE COME CLOSER TOGETHER, HE SAID, GIVING TO AN EVENTUAL SOLUTION MORE EXACT AND SURER FOUNDATIONS.
