In this respect, he said that this issue "was handled within well-studied frameworks and with wisdom and clear-sightedness," the minister underlined that the celebration of this day "coincides this year with another victory which is added to the series of victories won by the Algerian people, after the historical announcement by President Tebboune of the recovery of the remains of 24 heroes of the popular resistance and their companions, in order to bury them in the land for which they devoted their lives."
He called on "Algeria's valiant children to remain faithful to the martyrs' oath and to take them as an example in terms of commitment to the values, principles and ideals of the Nation to continue the State's building process," affirming that the generation of the independence "is conducting the struggle of construction and renewal, despite the exceptional health conditions facing the country, a battle as important as the struggle for freedom and independence."
