    SYNOPSIS: In the capital of Mauritania, Nouakchott -- the beginning of a ten-day meeting of the National Religious Council. It's the first time religious leaders in Mauritania have been brought together in this way -- and the opening of the conference was attended by President Ould Daddah, and the Minister of Fundamental Education and Religions Affairs, M. Ould Boye. Mauritania is almost entirely Muslim by religion.

    The opening address came from president Ould Daddah. He told delegates that the convening of the meeting marked another step in achieving the aims of the party, and the Government. President Daddah said that the results of the meeting will provide the government with a point of reference on which to work when defining the Islam religion within the national context.

    M. Ould Boye appealed to delegates to find answers to their problems without resorting to tribal sentiments.

    The first day of the meeting was taken up with the formation of various committees -- and decisions on the exact role that each committee was to play in the successful outcome of the conference. The meeting ends on Thursday.
