Britain could share its intelligence with Algeria as the countries work more closely to tackle terror. David Cameron outlined the plan tonight after talks with Algerian counterpart Abdelmalek Sellal, they include:
- Better co-operation on issues such as border and aviation security, and preventing the spread of extremist ideology
- Algeria to take part in a joint contingency planning exercise to share experiences in crisis response
Both Britain and Algeria are countries that have suffered from terrorism and we understand each other's suffering. What we have agreed is a strengthened partnership that looks at how we combat terrorism and how we improve security of this region. This should be about sharing our perspectives, about the risks and dangers that there are, but also sharing expertise.
