Morocco, Mauritania set to foster ties amid regional instability
Foreign minister Nasser Bourita’s visit also comes after a series of meetings between the two countries’ officials focusing on a set of issues including security cooperation.
Morocco has recently, as a sign of stronger relations, celebrated Mauritania as a guest of honor of the International Casablanca Book Fair.
However, the cancellation of the Mauritanian culture minister of his visit to the fair let many think there might be a misunderstanding that Bourita’s visit came to dissipate.
Bourita had said in a recent statement to the media that ties with Spain are stronger than those with Algeria and Mauritania, which according to Moroccan media was at the heart of the misunderstanding.
