July 5th 1962 - Algeria declared its independence from France


July 5th 1962: Algeria declares its independence from France. President Charles de Gaulle had two days earlier proclaimed the independence of Algeria. The basis was the Treaty of Evian, which was negotiated between the two countries in March. It provided for a ceasefire in the Algerian war, which had been fought with great severity since 1954, between the French and the independence movement of the FLN. De Gaulle guarantees financial support for Algeria and in turn ensures France continued access to Algerias oil reserves. Via referendum the Algerians ratify the treaty and their independence from France with 99.97 percent.
