MOSCOW, February 19 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Algeria should evaluate trade and economic relations and resolve all issues preventing their further development, the Algerian president said on Tuesday at a meeting with his Russian counterpart.

Algeria's Abdelaziz Bouteflika said he was not "fully satisfied by the development of bilateral [economic] relations".

"We have to understand why our performance was better in 2006 than in 2007," he said, "it is probable, that both parties are responsible."

Russia's President Vladimir Putin said he hoped the free trade zone between Algeria and the European Union would not put Russian companies at a disadvantage on the Algerian market.
