Rouhani congratulates Mauritania's President on National Day

Tehran, Nov 28, IRNA – Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, in a message on Thursday, congratulated President Mohamed Ould Cheikh Mohamed Ahmed Ould Ghazouani and Mauritanian people on National Day of Mauritania.

President Rouhani hoped that the relations between the two countries will develop to the highest level.

President Rouhani wished health and success for his Mauritanian counterpart and happiness for the people of Islamic Republic of Mauritania.

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.
