(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The #UnitedStates welcomes the release of the two Algerian diplomats, Mourad Ghessas and Kaddour Miloudi, who were kidnapped in April 2012 in Gao, Mali, by the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Wednesday.

"As we join the Algerian government and people in celebrating the safe return of their countrymen, we also express our sincere condolences for the loss of two other Algerian diplomats, Tahar Touati, who was illed by his captors, and Boualem Saies, who died while in the captivity of this terrorist group," Psaki said in a press release.


The #UnitedStates strongly condemns MUJAO's kidnapping for ransom and calls for the immediate and unconditional release of all those whom it holds hostage, she affirmed.

"We reaffirm our steadfast partnership with #Algeria and remain committed to continuing our strong counter-terrorism cooperation and shared unequivocal opposition to paying ransom to terrorists," Psaki added.
