Antony Blinken visits Algeria in shadow of Ukraine war

Blinken touched down at Boumediene airport and headed to meet foreign minister Ramtane Lamamra on his first visit as top US diplomat to the North African country. He had flown in from Algeria’s arch-rival Morocco, which in 2020 normalised ties with Israel under a deal that sparked renewed tensions over the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
