Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz left Nouakchott on Sunday for Khartoum on an official visit to Sudan at the invitation by his Sudanese counterpart Omar el Bashir, according to the government.

In December 2009, Bashir visited Mauritania, the first president to do so two months after the election of Abdel Aziz to the top post of the northwest African country.

After that visit, 15 agreements touching on several cooperation domains were signed between Sudan and Mauritania.

Sudan and Mauritania who share membership in several Arabic and Islamic organizations, are also tied by other relations and secular cultural exchanges. The two countries have economic relations notably in investment. Sudan is holding 70 percent of "Chinguittel", Mauritania's third mobile operator.
