NOUAKCHOTT: The Minister of Interior and Decentralisation of Mauritania, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, inaugurated a major street in Nouakchott named after the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The 30km road was opened in the presence of Issa Abdullah Masoud Al Kalbani, UAE Ambassador to Nouakchott, and a number of ministers and officials of the Mauritanian government.

Sheikh Zayed Road connects the heart of the capital, Nouakchott, to Umm Tunisi International Airport, which opened recently and is considered one of the most important landmarks.

Amate Bint Hamadi, head of Nouakchott Urban Group, said, “This development is of great significance since it comes in the Holy Month of Ramadan, which marks the anniversary of Sheikh Zayed, the symbol of generosity and humanitarianism, who left a rich history of giving without discrimination.”

Hamadi also said that the directives of the Mauritanian President, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, the government and the Urban Department to name the street after Sheikh Zayed was aimed at immortalising his memory in recognition of his efforts towards the entire nation and the well-established culture of humanitarian work.
