    Background: MR. OMAR SAKKAF, SAUDI ARABIAN MINISTER OF STATE IN CHARGE OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, ARRIVED IN ALGIERS ON TUESDAY (APRIL 21) FOR A THREE-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT.

    MR. SAKKAF WAS GREETED AT THE AIRPORT BY MR. ABDELAZIZ BOUTEFLIKA, THE ALGERIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, WHO EXTENDED TO MR. SAKKAF THE INVITATION TO VISIT ALGERIA.

    MR. SAKKAF WILL HAVE TALKS WITH MR. BOUTEFLIKA AND WITH ALGERIAN PRESIDENT HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE. THEY ARE EXPECTED TO DISCUSS A POSSIBLE VISIT BY KING FEISAL TO ALGERIA. PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE AND THE SAUDI ARABIAN KING MET TWICE LATE LAST YEAR IN RABAT FOR THE ISLAMIC AND ARAB SUMMIT CONFERENCES.

    TALKS BETWEEN MR. SAKKAF AND MR. BOUTEFLIKA ARE EXPECTED TO REVIEW THE MIDDLE EAST SITUATION AND PROBLEMS OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD IN THE LIGHT OF THE RECENT DJEDDAH MINISTERIAL CONFERENCE WHERE THE ALGERIAN DELEGATION EXPRESSED ITS RESERVATIONS ABOUT THE CREATION OF A PERMANENT SECRETARIAT FOR THE ISLAMIC CONFERENCE. THE ALGERIAN DELEGATION EVENTUALLY ABSTAINED WHEN A VOTE WAS TAKEN.

    TRADE AND ECONOMIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE STILL AT AN EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT. A TWO-YEAR OLD AIR AGREEMENT FOR THE OPENING OF A DJEDDAH-ALGIERS FLIGHT HAS NOT YET BEEN IMPLEMENTED. ALGERIAN PILGRIMS TO MECCA-SEVEN THOUSAND THIS YEAR GO ON CHARTER FLIGHTS.

    MR. SAKKAF IS THE FIRST SAUDI ARABIAN MINISTER TO VISIT ALGERIA IN 20 MONTHS. HE IS EXPECTED TO MEET WITH THE ALGERIAN INDUSTRY AND ENERGY MINISTER, MR. BELAID ABDESSALAM, AND TO VISIT AN IRON AND STEEL FACTORY DURING HIS VISIT.

    ON FRIDAY MR. SAKKAF -- WHO HAS JUST COMPLETED A SIMILAR VISIT TO TUNISIA FLIES TO MOROCCO.
