CAIRO – 4 June 2023: In a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, Mauritanian President Mohamed Weld Al Ghazwany stated Sunday that the talks with President Sisi tackled the conditions of Libya and Sudan as well as the "Nile Water" issue, commending the "patience" and "wisdom" the Egyptian leadership enjoys while dealing with that pivotal matter.


President Sisi said that their talks had been intensive and constructive valuing the historic ties with the fellow African state.


The president added that the discussions reflected a joint political willpower to reinforce bilateral cooperation and coordination on all levels, announcing that an Egyptian-Mauritanian Supreme Committee would convene later in 2023.


The two leaders also conferred over updates in the Arab World agreeing on the importance of preserving the unity and wealth of the Arab states. In that context, they discussed the Libyan crisis, congruing on the necessity of disbanding militias, deporting foreign mercenaries, and ending the presence of foreign troops.


The talks equally covered the issue of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), so as President Sisi stressed that the water security of Egypt is an integral part of Arab security.


The two chiefs of state agreed on bolstering joint work on the African level in tandem with holding consultations and coordinating within the framework of the African Union (AU).


On his side, the Mauritanian president thanked his Egyptian counterpart for the invitation to visit Cairo, and congratulated the Egyptian people on the great achievements accomplished under President Sisi.


"We should all be proud of those achievements, given that the strength of Egypt is a strength to the [Arab] nation…If Egypt is in good shape, we all are." the Mauritanian chief of state said, describing Egypt as a fortress.


President Weld Al Ghazwany highlighted the high status Egypt enjoys in the hearts of Mauritanians, showcasing the prominent role Egypt played and still plays in handling the major issues facing both the Arab and Islamic nations.
