As part of his working visit to Nouakchott, as special envoy of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Mr. Ahmed Attaf, was received Tuesday in Nouakchott by the President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, Mr. Mohamed Ould Cheikh El-Ghazaouani.
On this occasion, the Minister handed the Mauritanian President a letter from his brother President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, and conveyed his warm greetings and his determination to pursue joint action to achieve their common ambition to promote relations of brotherhood and cooperation between the two brotherly countries at the highest level possible.

In this regard, the two sides welcomed the important momentum of bilateral relations and the conclusions of the 19th session of the Grand Joint Commission which opens promising prospects for the establishment of a strategic partnership based on important economic projects, such as the road linking Tindouf to Zouerate, the opening of an Algerian bank in Nouakchott, the establishment of a permanent exhibition of the Algerian Company of Fairs and Exports (SAFEX), and the exploitation of fishing quotas offered by Mauritania to Algeria.
In addition, the meeting provided an opportunity to emphasize the commitment of the leaders of the two countries to the traditions of mutual support, consultation and coordination on issues raised in the various spaces and organizations of common membership, and this on the basis of their deep conviction that the tensions at the regional and international levels and the challenges arising, require the adoption of common approaches based more than ever on the principle of the common destiny.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Mr. Ould Cheikh El-Ghazaouani entrusted Minister Attaf to convey his warmest greetings to his brother President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and his great satisfaction with the exceptional level of relations of brotherhood and cooperation between Algeria and Mauritania, praising in this regard his constructive role and his tireless efforts in defending the issues and concerns of the Arab Nation, especially during his current presidency of the Council of the Arab League at the summit level.
