In Jordan’s mediation between Algeria and Morocco, lie is the king of Algeria. Between the Algerian diplomatic sources who present the knowledge and the president who denies it, the story takes on an unprecedented scale, particularly since King Abdullah II of Jordan is concerned.
Who’s to be believed within the case of King Abdullah II’s alleged mediation between Morocco and Algeria after his official journey to Algeria on December 3 and 4? One factor is for positive, Algiers is each a puppeteer who pulls strings and a marionette who suffers. Lamps.
The story begins with an article revealed within the Spanish media, Vanguardia, which reveals Jordan’s mediation between Algeria and Rabat over the gasoline pipeline. “The political disaster between Spain and Algeria is now on the verge of decision due to the mediation of King Abdullah II of Jordan. The monarch reached an settlement in precept in Algeria to revive the Maghreb-Europe (GME) gasoline pipeline as quickly as potential.writes the publication.
The media added that the king of Jordan went to Cairo earlier than Algeria “the place he acquired the help of Abdelfattah al-Sisi to mediate between Algeria and Morocco”whereas selling the Algerian-Moroccan assembly in Switzerland, referring to this “Algerian diplomatic supply who prefers to stay nameless as a result of she isn’t approved to talk to the press”.
“ We help King Abdullah’s mediation to open the GME. I feel it may well occur very quickly, and it is going to be a step in direction of the normalization of commerce relations with Spain.”– the Algerian supply informed the Spanish media.
This Algerian supply was later refuted by a killer article from the official Algerian media Echourouk, during which King Abdullah II is attacked and his energy minimized, justifying it, particularly, by the diametrically completely different positions between Algeria and Jordan on the Sahara challenge.
Algerian mass media add that earlier than the king of Jordan, no influential Arab chief has managed to persuade Algeria on the problem of reconciliation with Morocco, mentioning, amongst others, the French, the Mauritanians, and even the Saudis.
The Algerian newspaper goes on to accuse Morocco of maneuvering to have the article revealed by the Spanish media. Echuruk not solely attacked King Abdullah II, but in addition accused Vanguardia of publishing rumors and controlling Morocco, questioning its professionalism and ethics.
Nevertheless, the knowledge revealed by the Spanish media comes from Algeria, because it quotes an Algerian diplomatic supply.
Whereas the primary info comes from Algerian diplomacy, in a dramatic flip of occasions on Thursday evening, Algerian President Abdelmajid Teboun gave a televised interview to native media to disclaim any Jordanian mediation.
” He (King Abdullah II, be aware ed.) didn’t inform me about any nation. He did not come to mediation and he did not speak about mediation, neither he nor anybody else.” – mentioned Abdelmajid Tebun.
This time, the Algerian president denies any mediation efforts, not solely from Jordan, however he goes additional to say that there have by no means been any makes an attempt from different international locations, in order that the worldwide press has introduced varied initiatives, particularly Arab ones, and the systematic denial of them.
It appears clear that the Algerian regime has shot itself within the foot by making up historical past and denying it simply to indicate and get individuals to speak about it. President Teboun’s public lies, which he conveys with ease, above all formalize Algeria’s unreliability and inconsistency and expose it to a boomerang impact if one of many events concerned within the mediation confirms that they went properly.
