Relations between Turkey–Algeria

Turkey and Algeria share common history as well as deep-rooted cultural and brotherly ties. Bilateral relations gained impetus over the past years. The “Friendship and Cooperation Agreement”, which was signed during the visit of the then Prime Minister Erdoğan to Algeria in 2006, is a strong foundation on which bilateral relations are based. During the visit of President Erdoğan to Algeria on November 2014, various aspects of the bilateral relations were addressed. Both sides have reiterated their readiness to deepen bilateral ties.

Energy and construction constitute main pillars of economic relations. Turkish firms have undertaken significant projects in Algeria with a cumulative value of 12,2 billion USD so far. Trade volume between Turkey and Algeria has exceeded 4 billion dollars in 2015.

Turkish construction firms are working interalia on cultural restoration sites, such as Kechiova Mosque and Casbah neighborhood in the capital.

Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Center, currently operating within the Algeria 2 University, contributes to our bilateral cultural relations.
