President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Saturday met with the acting President of Mauritius Paramasivum Pillay Barlen Vyapoory, as part of the ongoing official visit to Mauritius.
The two leaders discussed ways to further enhance mutual relations between the two countries, a task given special impetus due to the many shared challenges faced as island nations in the Indian Ocean.
President Solih thanked the Acting President for the warm welcome accorded to himself, the First Lady, and the accompanying delegation, by the Mauritanian Government since their arrival.
The President further remarked that he greatly enjoyed Friday's opening ceremony for the 10th iteration of the Indian Ocean Island Games (IOIG) presently being held in Mauritius, and expressed his eagerness to witness many of the sporting events that have been scheduled to take place in the upcoming days.
Concluding the meeting, President Solih asked the Acting President to convey his warmest regards to the government and people of Mauritius.
