On Tuesday, the Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz concluded a two-day official visit to the Sudanese capital during which he met with President Omer al-Bashir and his First Vice-President Bakri Hassan Salih.

In his address before the final session of the joint Sudanese-Mauritanian Higher Committee, al-Bashir described Abdel-Aziz visit to Sudan as “successful and fruitful”, pointing to the MoU and programmes that have been signed between the two sides.

He pointed out that the signing of these agreements would push forward the joint cooperation, saying “we are satisfied with the current level of bilateral relations”.

For his part, the Mauritanian President expressed his appreciation for the great hospitality he received during his visit to Sudan.

He pointed out to the strong relations between the two countries, expressing admiration for Sudan’ industrial development experience.
