Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune will pay a state visit to China next week, Beijing said Thursday.
China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Tebboune will pay a five-day trip to China at the invitation of President Xi Jinping.
Tebboune’s visit comes after Algeria and China signed another five-year strategic agreement until 2026 last November to boost communications and bilateral relations.
The agreement focuses on the economy, agriculture, energy, technology, space, and culture.
China and Algeria have upgraded their relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership with an annual bilateral trade of around $7 billion.
