Nouakchott,  29/11/2021
The President of the Republic, His Excellency Mr. Mohamed ould Cheikh El Ghazuani, received the following telegram from the president of The Republic of France, His Excellency Mr. Immanuel Macron.

« Mr. President,

On the occasion of the National Day of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, I am pleased to express, on my own behalf and behalf of the French people, my warmest congratulations to you personally and the Mauritanian people.

Since your election as President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, you have worked diligently and persistently to strengthen the rule of law, develop your country's economic capabilities, and reduce social disparities between the components of Mauritanian society.

France stands with Mauritania to realize its ambitions.
I also hope that the forthcoming national consultation, which you have wished to be as inclusive as possible, will enable you to anchor Mauritania even more in modernity while continuing to offer the example of a moderate tolerant and Islam. I reiterate my thanks for the leading role you have played in recent months in responding to the challenges related to climate change, environmental preservation, and sustainable development, notably at the One Planet Summit in Paris and, more recently, at COP26 in Glasgow. I am satisfied with the high level of our bilateral relations in this field.

There is no doubt that the development of innovative solutions to meet the challenges, especially in the Sahel region, is a priority and you can rely upon France's support for Mauritania in this field.

The year 2021 was marked by the continuation of collective efforts to provide a global response to the challenges of the Sahel. I mention here in particular the N'Djamena Summit that you jointly convened with Chad, at the end of your presidency of the G5 Sahel, and which made it possible to consolidate the actions undertaken since the Pau and Nouakchott Summits.

France remains committed, alongside you, in the fight against terrorism in the Sahel to achieve socio-economic development of the region. We will also continue supporting the mobilization of international partners within the framework of the Coalition for the Sahel and the Sahel Alliance.

I reiterate to you and the Mauritanian people my sincere wishes for security and prosperity, please accept, Mr. President, my highest consideration».
