The Equatoguinean presidential couple went to Malabo airport to receive the President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, H. E. Mohamed Uld Abdelaziz and his wife, the First Lady, Mariam Mint Ahmed, who ware on a five-hour private visit to our country on 27th April.
To welcome the Mauritanian delegation, the Head of State and Government, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo and his wife, Constancia Mangue de Obiang, went to the Presidential pavilion at Malabo International Airport, together with some ministers, advisers to the head of State’s Office and director generals from the presidency of the Republic.
This private visit, although short, aims to highlight the close relations uniting the governments of Nuakchot and Malabo.
The two leaders and former presidents of the African Union held talks in the presence of their wives, focussing on matters of current importance for the African continent in general, and in particular those related to the strengthening of diplomatic relations for the two countries.
During his stay on Equatoguinean soil, the delegation from the Islamic Republic of Mauritania had lunch at the Marcos Obiang Nsue estate in Riaba, which was organised by the presidential couple of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. The appointment was attended by the delegations from the two nations.
The leader of the Union for the Republic Party, in power since 2009, was born on 20th December 1965, and is the second Head of State to visit our country in 2019, following the visit by the new South African leader, H. E. Cyril Ramaphosa.
The Islamic Republic of Mauritania, an independent country since 28th November 1960, is located in the north east of Africa, and has a population of around four million. It is a member of the African Union and the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Group, the ACP.
