Iranian FM arrives in Algeria for two-day visit

June 1, 2007 23:52

Iran's foreign minister arrived Friday in Algeria for a two-day visit, aimed at boosting bilateral ties months after a planned stop in the North African nation by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was abruptly canceled. The visit by Manouchehr Mottaki amounted to a new effort by Iran, whose nuclear program has attracted grave suspicion in the West, to portray itself as a regional power for the Middle East and North Africa. In January, Ahmadinejad's planned one-day stopover in Algiers following a trip to Latin America was abruptly canceled. No official reason was given.
