President Boumediene has stated that he "hopes for increased ties between us and our traditional adversaries in Europe and America and our friends in the Arab world" so he will be attending both conferences the one in Cairo personally and the one in America via vice president Ben Ali. On another note the president has condemned Israel saying "The union will forever continue its stance that Israel must be destroyed no matter how many traitors seek to aid it". The president has long been an advocate for the Palestinians and Arab as well as Muslim co-operation. The government says it will "view events in Palestine with interest" and has not recognized "Liwa Falasteen" as a terrorist organisation.
