President Ould Daddah recently paid a working visit to senegal and declared that there should be unity between Africa and the Arab world.
Mauritania, he explained, could be a link between the two worlds, able to explain Africa to the Arabs and the Arab World to Africa.
The President confirmed that Mauritania had been invited to join the proposed merger between Libya and Tunisia but had not yet given a final answer.
