Algeria is severing diplomatic relations with Morocco, Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra announced on Tuesday.

"Algeria has decided as of Tuesday to break off its diplomatic relations with Morocco," Lamamra read a letter on behalf of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune during a press conference in capital Algiers.

This decision is motivated by the fact that Algeria rejects the logic of the "fait accompli" and the unilateral policies that Morocco has been taking, he added.
