Decidedly former French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, always wishes to refer to Algeria in the unkind words that often raise polemics and arouse misunderstanding on the side of the southern shore of the Mediterranean.
It has indeed become famous once again in this regard. Nicolas Sarkozy, who presides over the destinies of Republicans party (ex-UMP) has openly displayed his penchant for the revision of the Evian agreements. "Because in 1962, that was a long time there's" Nicolas Sarkozy responded to a question that was put to him during a dinner shared with young French entrepreneurs
These words, reported by the weekly Le Point, clearly indicate that the former French president wants to review the terms of these agreements between the two countries since 1962.
These agreements, negotiated with the French government by the Provisional Government of the Algerian Republic (GPRA) helped lead to the ceasefire on March 19 of that year and the independence of Algeria a few months, but also have and especially given the facilities and privileges to Algerian nationals established in France.
And it is in relation to the latter aspect that the former head of French state wants to introduce changes to the Evian agreements. In truth, this is not the first time that Sarkozy, who was president from 2007 to 2012 and aims to return to the Elysee Palace, the presidential elections of 2017, displays its determination to review the Evian agreements since many of his close collaborators have suggested that he wished to see them residence permits for Algerian nationals established in France.
Sarkozy once again proves that he does not Algeria in his heart and there has to remember the difficulty of the relationship between the two countries during his tenure to be convinced. From 2007 to 2012 relations between France and Algeria have never been the same fixed fine if the French president paid a state visit in December of 2007. There are just a few months, Nicolas Sarkozy Algeria caused the taking malicious remarks.
During a visit in Tunisia, last July Sarkozy held very critical about on Algeria. "Algeria, what will happen in the future? Its development, its situation? This is a subject which, to me it seems, must be treated in the Union of the Mediterranean "he said in particular stating also that" woes "Tunisia came from its location since it is located between Libya and Algeria. It was enough to cause an outcry in Algeria where political parties and civil society organizations have denounced the remarks.
His comments also provoked the reaction of the government through the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The Minister of State, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Ramtane Lamamra, has shown effect from the French capital where he was visiting the statement of Nicolas Sarkozy about the Algeria "is misplaced" .
The irony is that Sarkozy has downplayed his remarks pursuing its headlong rush. "I was surprised because nothing in my remarks not meant critical of anyone, certainly not of Algeria for which I, as everyone knows, a deep friendship," he says unconvincingly person in Algeria.
