“I have the privilege of visiting for the first time the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria and the National Museum of the Moudjahid as a sign of my deep respect for the brotherly people of Algeria.
The National Mujahid Museum is an important complex that contains one of the most tragic and, at the same time, the proudest pages of the glorious history of the Algerian people. This museum is of exceptional importance in terms of preserving the memory of the colonial policy of cruelty and unprecedented violence against the Algerian people, war and crimes against humanity, the national struggle against the colonial forces and the victory of independence won at the cost of only one and half a million martyrs. It is important from the point of view of transmission to future generations.
The struggle for freedom and independence, which began with the aim of getting rid of ruthless colonial slavery, is forever etched in the history of Algeria as a symbol of great bravery, unity, unwavering will and determination of the Algerian people.
As the leader of a friendly and brotherly country, I am very proud to see the development and prosperity of fraternal Algeria, which obtained its independence at the cost of great sacrifices.
I would like to express my gratitude for the warm welcome extended to me at the National Mujahid Museum and wish the museum every success in perpetuating the heroic heritage of the Algerian people,” wrote the Head of State.
