ALGIERS, March 13 (Reuters) - Algeria’s army will preserve the north African country’s security “in all circumstances and conditions”, Deputy Defence Minister Ahmed Gaed Salah told Ennahar TV on Wednesday.

Ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has abandoned his bid for a fifth term in power but stopped short of stepping down. Gaed Salah is also the armed forces chief of staff.
