Country Report
The government has lifted visa requirements for Algerian nationals entering the kingdom, signalling a tentative warming of relations. Bitter differences between the two countries have long impeded the regional integration efforts of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU), an institution that also includes Tunisia, Libya and Mauritania. Now, however, the two countries are discussing ways in which they can improve their relations and reactivate the AMU. This has positive implications for regional trade, and opens up the possibility of improved co-operation in the fields of security and intelligence.
