Head of the State, Abdelkader Bensalah, called Tuesday on professionals in the information sector to "assume their role at this crucial juncture, where none of them are aware of the issues at stake."
"I call on all professionals in the information sector and national elites to assume their role at this crucial juncture, which no one is aware of," said Bensalah in a message on the occasion of the National Press Day celebration.
Welcoming "the efforts of public and private information sectors to ensure professionalism and sense of responsibility over any tendency of exacerbation and division, the Head of State said that this reflects the journalistic maturity and genuine patriotic belonging of our journalists and their glowing jealousy towards their motherland, intrinsically hostile to any attack on national sovereignty and people's unity," he said.
After noting the undeniable contribution of journalists from the various national media, Bensalah referred to "the support of the public authorities efforts, which have constantly mobilized all available means in this difficult situation to meet the society's concerns and translate State policy into practice through social provisions and measures aimed at improving the living conditions, taking charge of youth and mobilizing more resources for the benefit of southern regions and High Plateaus "as well as "promoting and broadening political dialogue through discussion circles, programmes, interviews and other forms of journalistic work in line with the country's current situation."
He noted, in the same vein, "the strong willingness of the country's institutions and bodies to enure the suitable conditions for Algeria's transition to a new era."
