"Army General, Said Chanegriha, Chief of Staff of the People's National Army,"
Algeria, our dear homeland has lived, on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the recovery of its national sovereignty, to the rhythm of festivities worthy of the nationalist spirit rooted in our people who followed, with great pride, the military parade of July 5 morning.
This event, oh so exceptional, had a great effect on the Algerian people who had not witnessed, for years, such grandiose scenes which reflect the strong and impressive image of the cohesion between our valiant army and our great people.
Highly significant scenes in terms of precision in the organization and mastery of details, the result of a professional organization and a rigorous execution of high precision... This event which was marked by the presence of heads of state and personalities who took part in the event, is an irrefutable proof of the importance of this event in the history of the country.
I am delighted with the resounding success of the military parade in all its harmoniously formed figures, and I express my appreciation to you and to all the officers, non-commissioned officers, soldiers and staff who supervised the preparation and execution operations and ensured their smooth running until the last minute.
My congratulations to all of you for this grandiose feat that has given back to Algeria the lustre that it deserves and to the citizens pride and confidence... A feat written in gold letters on the register of the history of the great deeds of the National Popular Army and whose brightness will remain alive in the memory of the Nation and will resound far beyond the borders of which you are the valiant guardians.
