French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne has arrived in Algeria on a two-day visit aimed at improving ties with the former French colony – a major gas exporter.

Ms. Borne’s delegation includes 16 ministers – more than a third of her government.

She is expected to sign deals on economic cooperation.

Ties between the two nations soured last year after French President Emmanuel Macron questioned Algeria’s existence as a nation before the French occupation.

Relations were restored when Mr. Macron visited the country in August.
