The Moroccan medical aid, sent Sunday to Nouakchott international airport upon Very High Instructions from HM King Mohammed VI, to help Mauritania face the Covid19 pandemic, testify to the solid relations between the leaders of the two countries, His Majesty the King and His Excellency President Mohamed Ould Cheikh El-Ghazouni, as well as between their two peoples, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Mauritanians Abroad Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
In a statement to the press, Ould Cheikh Ahmed said that "the sending of this aid, made up of medical material and equipment, comes at the right time for us in Mauritania" insofar as it will support the government in this very difficult period to deal with the spread of the pandemic.
He expressed his admiration and congratulations to the Moroccan people and government for the victory achieved in the fight against this virus, and which testifies to the quality of Moroccan human resources and the capacity of the Kingdom to stem this pandemic.
Ould Cheikh Ahmed also underlined his country's desire to benefit from the experience of the Kingdom, as well as to share expertise with Morocco.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Mauritanians Abroad reiterated, on behalf of President Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, his country's gratitude to HM King Mohammed VI, and to the Moroccan people and government for this substantial help.
The solid relations between the two countries witnessed, during the last year after the election of President Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, a strong impetus both in terms of trade and culture and at the educational level, he said, noting that "many Mauritanian students are pursuing their studies in various specialties in Morocco".
"We always seize such opportunities to thank the Kingdom of Morocco" for welcoming Mauritanian students in Moroccan universities, he said.
He also recalled the directives of the two Heads of State to hold joint commissions as soon as possible, in particular the Joint High Commission, and to intensify exchanges at the cultural, scientific and commercial levels between two countries, deeming that the sending of this aid is a tangible proof of the solidity of these ties.
