President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, Mohamed Ould Cheikh El-Ghazaouani, at Cairo International Airport, at the start of the Mauritanian President’s three-day visit to Egypt.

Upon their arrival at Al-Ittihadiya Palace, an official reception ceremony was held during which the guard of honor were inspected and the national anthems of both countries were played.

Spokesman for the Presidency, Counselor Ahmad Fahmy, said President El-Sisi and the Mauritanian President held a bilateral session of talks, followed by an expanded meeting attended by the two countries’ delegations. The two Presidents valued the ongoing development in Egyptian-Mauritanian relations, as well as the steady progress in the longstanding historical bonds between the two countries over the past years across all levels, particularly in the military and security aspects as well as in counter-terrorism efforts in the Sahel region.
