«During this call, the two Heads of State expressed their great satisfaction with the rapid development of bilateral cooperation, as well as their great willingness to consolidate and raise it to a level that will enable the deepening of this cooperation between the two neighboring countries, the broadening of its prospects and the diversification of its fields», the same communiqué adds.

This meeting was an opportunity for the Sovereign and the Mauritanian president to «discuss the latest regional developments». King Mohammed VI «expressed his readiness to pay an official visit to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, while extending an invitation to His Excellency the President to visit his second country, the Kingdom of Morocco», concludes the statement.

This telephone exchange comes a week after the operation carried out on November 13 by the Royal Armed Forces in Guerguerate which allowed the re-establishment of the movement of goods and people through the passage between the two neighboring countries.

The three weeks of blockade of the corridor by Polisario militias have seriously impacted the Mauritanian economy.
