Algeria is one of the Middle Eastern North African nations that has the scientific and technological capacity to develop nuclear weapons if legal, political and other barriers to nuclear weapons proliferation decline and lose their efficacy.  “Algeria has the expertise and the means to produce nuclear weapons” should it decide to do so, said independent researcher Mark Gorwitz, and he added that it might be able to accomplish the task in just a couple of years.

Mr. Gorwitz prepared an updated open source bibliography of Algerian nuclear science and engineering publications, which is posted here (pdf).
