Tunisia: Tribute to Nation's Role in Training Mauritanian Doctors

Carthage — Tunisian-Mauritanian relations and ways to strengthen them, particularly in the health field were discussed at a meeting held Wednesday between Caretaker President Moncef Marzouki and Mauritanian Health Minister Bâ Housseinou Hamadi.

The Mauritanian minister said his visit to Tunisia takes place on the signing of a set of agreements between the Tunisian Ministry of Health and its Mauritanian counterpart to hire Tunisian technicians in Mauritanian hospitals, said a presidency statement.

These agreements give a fresh impetus to bilateral health co-operation, he said, adding that his country needs Tunisian skills in this area.

Bâ Housseinou Hamadi paid tribute to the role of Tunisian university hospital physicians, including the current President of the Republic, in the training of Mauritanian doctors.
