Ambassador and Deputy Secretary Walk Downtown and visit Moudjahid National Museum


During a visit to Algiers July 22-25, 2016, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken took a walk downtown with U.S. Ambassador Joan Polaschik to learn about Algerian culture and history.  He also visited the Moudjahid National Museum and wrote this message to Algerians: “An extraordinary testament to the Algerian people’s struggle for freedom and self-determination. We admire the courage of generations of Algerians to pursue their independence—a spirit we Americans and Algerians share.”
