Emirati state-run news agency, WAM, reported that Ould Ghazouani and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince, Mohamed bin Zayed al Nahyan also signed a number of agreements and memorandums during their meeting.
The two countries are bound by strong ties. Mauritania has sent troops to Yemen to fight on the side of the Emirati-Saudi-led international coalition fighting Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
The Emirati pledge comes following wide spread rumors of the Arab Gulf country’s plans to establish a military base in the North African country. The Mauritanian defense ministry has debunked the rumors.
