ALGIERS, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- Algeria has taken all required measures to face the impact of the current foreign military intervention in Mali, Interior Minister Daho Ould Kablia said Wednesday.

"Algeria has taken all necessary measures to deal with the impact of the foreign military intervention in Mali," Ould Kablia told the government-run TV channel ENTV, adding that all the countries of the region are concerned by this impact.

On Friday, France sent military troops to back up Malian army to recover the northern part of this West African nation, which was controlled by extremist armed groups linked to al-Qaida.

Algeria opened its airspace for French plane jets to carry out military action in northern Mali against the extremist rebels.

Rebels including MUJAO, AQIM, Ansar Dine and the MNLA occupied the Malian areas of Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal in the aftermath of a military coup on March 22, 2012.

Algerian main concern over the military intervention repercussions is the infiltration of arms and extremist rebels, in addition to the flow of refugees from the neighbor nation, although the army forces have closed borders and stiffened their presence along the border.
