The President of Mauritania discusses with Borrell the strengthening of security and political issues between the two countries

Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz held talks this evening, Wednesday, at the presidential palace in Nouakchott, with Joseph Borrell, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Politics and Security in the European Union.

Borrell said - in statements to reporters after the meeting - that this visit expresses what the Union attaches to Mauritania as a stable country and as an important strong partner, who recently assumed the successful rotating presidency of the Group of Sahel Countries, and that Mauritania is a model for consolidating stability in the region.

He explained that he hopes Mauritania will continue its approach to developing the state's capabilities in order to enhance stability and prosperity, so that this country can continue to play its role on various economic and social levels in cooperation with the European Union.

The European Union is considered one of the most prominent economic partners of Mauritania, as the two sides have agreements in various fields, the most prominent of which is marine fishing.
