During his tenure as Foreign Minister Al-Jazair, he became a very prominent member of the international community and was respected as the NAM leader for nations who did not want to take part in the western bloc, the capitalist United States and the eastern bloc, the socialist Soviet Union.
In 1965, he was later promoted to head of the organizer group by Ahmed Ben Bella. He quit as Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1979 after losing an offer to replace President Houari Boumédiènne.
Between 1981-1987, he was banished because of alleged corruption as his political opponents had said, but in the end, he returned after the case died. He signed a protest against the government’s brutality which was declared in 1988 and was the center of attention.
In 1999, he headed to the presidency and was appointed as a free candidate, with 74% of the vote, according to the authorities. All other candidates have withdrawn from the election, citing fraudulent concerns. Then Bouteflika arranged a referendum on his policies to restore peace and security at al-Jazair and test his support among his countrymen after the election struggle and win with a result of 81% of the vote.
On April 8, 2004, the secular president was reappointed with 85% of the vote in an election which observers said was an example of democracy in the Arab world, when it was in contention with its rival and former Chief of Staff Ali Benflis.
