Former Algerian Minister of Urban Development and former head of the FLN party Abderrahmane Belayat stated that Algeria should obtain nuclear weapons. Speaking on September 20 at an event organized by Al-Hiwar newspaper under the title "Zionist Violation of Al-Aqsa," Belayat said that Algeria should place its nuclear weapons on a mountain and tell the Jews to leave Palestine.

Following is an excerpt:

Former Algerian Minister Abderrahmane Belayat: We must obtain nuclear [weapons]. Unless we have nuclear power, nobody will talk to us – not the English, the Russians, or anybody. When we have nuclear [weapons], we will place it in the Tikjda [skir resort] or in the Aurès Mountains, and we will tell the Jews to leave [Palestine].
