Regional energy security; U.S. willing to launch partnership with Algeria

US State Department said Monday it wanted to launch energy partnership with Algeria, in a view to ensuring supply security in the region, notably for the European market.

“One of the best ways for the United States and the Algerian government to work together is to strengthen region’s energy security by promoting energy diversification,” said Sandra Oudkirk, Deputy vice-Secretary of State at the Algerian-American Forum on energy in Houston.

“Algeria is a major energy supplier for Europe and we congratulate it for being a reliable partner, helping the continent to diversify its supply,” she added.

The deputy vice-secretary of state highlighted that “the United States encouraged Algeria to increase its exports to Europe as well as other countries”, stressing, moreover, the strengthening of the relations between the two country in recent years.

“Economic cooperation is really the basis for strengthened bilateral relations,” she said.
