The first official meeting within the civil protection consultation framework agreement between Monaco and Mauritania took place last week in the Maghreb region of western Africa.

Representing Mauritania were the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Finance, and the Ministry of the Interior and Decentralisation. Monaco was represented by the head of the fire brigade, the Honorary Consul and representatives of the Directorate for International Cooperation.

The meeting on October 25 followed the signing of the agreement in July this year. On that occasion, the Monegasque delegation was led by Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Director General of the Department for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, who was received by the highest Mauritanian authorities.

Cooperation between the two countries in the field of civil protection, initiated by Monaco’s fire service, has been in place for the past 20 years.

Diplomatic relations between Monaco and the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, which borders Algeria, Senegal and Mali, was officially established in 2011, although Mauritania has also been a country for priority cooperation and aid by the Monaco government since 2002.
