Adjabi also said that he worked in Algeria’s consulate in Istanbul as deputy consul general between 2007-2008. He also talked about his happiness to come back to the country as the ambassador, nearly ten years later.

“I started working as an ambassador in this beautiful and important country. It is my main mission to further advance relations between the two countries, that has been excellent from past to present,” Adjabi said.
