The visit is seen as evidence of the historic ties of friendship and cooperation between Cuba and Algeria, a relationship based on mutual respect and solidarity. Algeria became an independent state in 1962. Since then, it has maintained constant diplomatic relations with Cuba.
Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro made seven trips to Algeria; the last one in 2001.
