    Morocco and Mauritania are working to further their bilateral cooperation on a broad range of issues of shared interests, including trade and diplomacy.

    During the meeting with his Mauritanian counterpart, the Moroccan FM expressed his satisfaction with the development of relations between their two countries, noting “the strong, historic ties and continuous dialogue.”

    He added that “coordination and cooperation with Mauritania spans across various fields, mainly diplomacy, humanitarian and educational cooperation.”

    Despite describing the relationship between the two countries as “special and incomparable,” Bourita expressed Morocco’s ambition for “stronger, more consequential economic cooperation.”

    He stated that “in the economic sector, there is significant untapped potential,” adding: “In spite of the unutilized possibilities, there is a strong common wish to improve economic cooperation on both sides.”

    During a joint press conference following the meeting between the two FMs, the Mauritanian diplomat expressed his appreciation for the “constant” dialogue with Bourita, and satisfaction with Morocco’s historic and strong maintenance of bilateral cooperation.

    Ahmed said that the meeting included “a number of political consultations, regarding various fields such as trade, business, and regional issues.”

    The Mauritanian diplomat added that the fact that “both countries have similar views and perspectives on many issues” will further facilitate the improvement of bilateral cooperation.

    He also noted the “important symbolic significance of the newly inaugurated Mauritanian diplomatic mission building, in the heart of the Moroccan capital,” adding that “it constitutes a strong indicator to the positive direction of relations between Rabat and Nouakchott.”

    Noting that “over 3000 Mauritanian students are enrolled in Moroccan universities, in addition to over 10,000 Mauritanians settled in Morocco, ” the head of Mauritanian diplomacy thanked the Moroccan FM and people for hosting “an important Mauritanian community in Morocco.”

    Bourita echoed his counterpart’s statement, saying that “60% of foreign Arab students in Morocco are Mauritanian, making education one of the primary cooperation sectors between both countries.”
