1 thought on “Algeria: tilt towards Qatar”

  1. I think it is always worth remembering that Saudi Arabia has always been strongly opposed to Algeria’s strong backing for the PLO in the 60-80s and its positions in OPEC. Furthermore Algerian relations with Iran remain on an even keel – the role Algeria played in solving the US hostage crisis is not forgotten in Tehran. Finally there are strong suspicions of private Saudi funding of some Islamist terrorist groups in Algeria and, in private, senior Algerians are very critical of Saudi policy in Yemen.
