The Asharq Al-Awsat reported that Algerian state TV reported on Wednesday, citing a presidency statement, the Algerian ambassador to France will return to Paris on Jan. 6.

Mohamed Antar Daoud was recalled for consultations in October following comments attributed to French President Emmanuel Macron in which he doubted the existence of the Algerian nation before the French colonization.

President Abdelmadjid Tebboune met with Daoud on Wednesday before he resumes his post.
