Foreign and European Affairs Minister Jean Asselborn traveled to Algeria for an official state visit which will last until Thursday.

Minister Asselborn will meet his Algerian counterpart, Minister Ramtane Lamamra, as well as Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune.

Discussions are expected to revolve mainly around the war in Ukraine since the conflict has created several food shortages on the African continent. In addition, Luxembourg and Algeria will sign a bilateral air agreement.
