Migration: Key decisions taken late March to secure borders

ALGIERS- Significant decisions to secure the borders have been taken in an inter-ministerial council meeting late March to face the constant flow of African migrants to Algeria, the director of studies for migration at the ministry of Interior said.

Speaking to National Radio's channel 3, Hacene  Kacimi said the "constant flow of at least 500 migrants per day to Algeria is a matter of concern for the senior government authorities."

The migration phenomenon "actually hides a secret agenda of interference and militarization spaces."

The current situation has brought about major geostrategic challenges which led to the convening of an inter-ministerial council meeting, on March 29, taking crucial measures to secure the borders," the Algerian official said.  

The representative of the ministry of the Interior stressed that the country's southern provinces "will not be Africa's Lampedusa (in reference to the Italian island)."

Algeria has taken "all the necessary measures to prevent that the border areas in the country's south become a large-scale migrant camp."
