Jahangiri congratulates Mauritania's national day

Tehran, Nov 28, IRNA – Iranian First Vice-President Ishaq Jahangiri on Thursday congratulated Mauritania's Prime Minister Ismail Ould Bedde Ould Cheikh Sidiya on National Day of Mauritania.

In his message to the Mauritanian counterpart, Jahangiri said hat the two countries enjoy friendly relations and common grounds to expand cooperation in all fields.

National Day of Mauritania, marked on November 28th, is the country's Independence Day from France on November 28th 1960.

Mauritania came under French control in the late 19th century, during the so-called 'scramble for Africa'. Mauritania was part of French West Africa from 1920, first as a protectorate and then as a colony.

After the end of the World War II, French territories in the region became increasingly autonomous. Mauritania gained full independence from France on November 28th 1960.
