Djamel Bouktech, 66, a dates seller poses for a photograph at his shop in the old city of Algiers, Algeria, May 17, 2017. "I think itÕs just a simple courtesy visit because the Arabs of the Middle East are and will always be friends and strong allies of the USA. They have common interests also," Bouktech said. "This will have a positive effect for the allies of the USA and negative for the others in the Middle East in the long term because of the fragility of the region."
