Mauritania severing diplomatic ties with Israel

Mauritania's decision to recall its ambassador to Israel earlier this week marked the "first step" to cutting ties with the Jewish state, an adviser to the northwest African country's military junta said on Saturday.


"Mauritania's decision to recall its ambassador in Israel is a first step towards severing ties with this aggressive entity," said Cheikh Ben Horma Ould Ben Babana, adviser to the president of Mauritania's ruling High Council of State. "This relationship between Mauritania and the Israeli entity disturbs and embarrasses Mauritanians." (Reuters)
