NARCO CLOSEHOLD: Algeria Gets in the Game

Thursday, June 9, 2022

By Geoff D. Porter

Algeria is off the bench and in the game.

Much to everyone’s surprise, on 8 June, Algiers announced that it was withdrawing from a friendship and cooperation treaty with Madrid. Later that evening, Algiers ordered Algerian banks to suspend bank transactions with Spain as of 9 June. Algerian gas exports to Spain, which relies on Algerian supplies for nearly 50% of its energy needs, are not in Algiers’ crosshairs.

At least for now.
