Prensa Latina President Luis Enrique González Acosta and APS General Director Samir Gaid were pleased with the renewal of the agreement at a time when the challenges of information are more worrying due to the proliferation of the so-called fake news in cyberspace.
González Acosta praised the long and fruitful relationship between both agencies and expressed his conviction that in addition to the will of understanding and collaboration, the conditions allow advancement towards ambitious goals in the exchange of services, consultancy, and dissemination.
He said that Prensa Latina is working on launching a news service in the Arabic language soon, which will result in positioning its offices in North Africa and the Middle East in general.
Samir Gaid announced that APS is also preparing the conditions to launch a news service in the Spanish language, to be added to the current broadcasts in Arabic, French, and the local language on its websites, for national and regional use.
Gaid and Gonzalez Acosta appreciated Cuban President Miguel Diaz Canel’s recent visit to Algeria and the spirit of increasing ties.
A tour of the APS facilities, which covered its communication and multimedia departments, newsrooms, social media, and historical museum, served to end Prensa Latina’s visit.
