For 35 years, the Crans Montana Forum has been welcoming all persons of good faith, working for Peace, Liberty and Humane Dignity.
I am proud that, in the few months following his election, the new President of Algeria, Mr. Abdulaziz Bouteflika, as an exemple, took part in two Forums !
He liked a lot the Swiss Alps of Crans-Montana and we walked together to discover the marvellous landscapes of Valais. He accepted also my invitation to come to a Monaco and we shared many hours with HSH Prince Rainier III. They became friends obviously.
He talked a lot to me on these occasions. I also visited him in Algiers and I accompanied him to New-York for a UN General Conference .
I will publish one day this verbatim... They are historical words and a strong and true vision on his country and the reality of its leadership !
