Darah to cooperate with Algerian National Archives

King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah) and the Algerian National Archives have recently signed a scientific cooperation deal to carry out research related to joint history, in the framework of the cultural cooperation agreements between the two countries.
The Deputy Secretary General of Darah, Nasir Al-Juhaimi, signed the deal, which came on the sidelines of the 8th session of the joint Saudi-Algerian Commission. The director general of Arab states at the Algerian Foreign Ministry, Ambassador Abdulhamid Shabshoub, signed for his country.
This latest cooperation aims to strengthen the existing scientific and cultural collaboration between the Kingdom and Algeria, which goes a long way back. Notably, since the creation of the Saudi state and the emergence of the reformist call by Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulwahhab and its spread in North Africa down to the Algerian revolution against the colonialists, Saudi Press Agency quoted Al-Juhaimi as saying.
He said the deal is the 8th of its kind to be signed by Darah with Arab, Islamic and global centers, which are interested in Saudi Arabia’s history, geography, heritage and the history of the Arabian Peninsula in general.
The deal is also meant to encourage scientific visits, enrich studies with specialized writings, as well as stimulate meetings between Algerian and Saudi historians, and expand areas of study between the North African countries, particularly Algeria, and the Arabian Peninsula, he said.
