Mauritania lifts suspension of fisheries agreement with Senegal

Mauritania has agreed to lift the suspension of the fisheries agreement with Senegal, signed in April, according to a statement issued Wednesday here by the Senegalese Ministry of Maritime Economy.

The suspension, which became effective on 7 April, was a result of non compliance with certain provisions of the agreement by Senegalese fishermen.
