Mohamed Aoun, the Minister of Oil and Gas, has called for African nations to come together and form a unified front in the areas of gas, electricity, water, roads, and railway networks.

In an interview with the Algerian News Agency, Aoun said that doing so would ensure the interests of the African countries, as well as the interests of other nations.

Aoun suggested that African nations could be linked through electricity networks and other infrastructure, similar to gas pipelines, emphasizing the importance of African organizations, particularly the African Union and the Organization of African Petroleum Producing Countries. He also noted that more than 600 million Africans lack access to electricity.

The minister highlighted Africa's immense wealth, including gas, oil, agricultural, and animal resources. He stressed that Africans have the right to live a decent life according to the wealth available on their continent.

As he welcomed partnerships with foreign countries, including Europe and the United States, he emphasized that such collaborations must be equal and mutually beneficial.

Given the current geopolitical circumstances, he emphasized the importance of the upcoming seventh summit of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum, which Algeria will host at the end of next week.
