US Embassy, Nouakchott, Mauritania 

The mission of the United States Embassy is to advance the interests of the United States, and to serve and protect U.S. citizens in Mauritania.

The United States was the first country to recognize Mauritania’s independence from France in 1960. The United States engages with Mauritania on a wide array of issues, including counterterrorism, food security, trade promotion, and efforts to strengthen human rights and the rule of law.

The U.S. condemned Mauritania’s 2005 and 2008 military coups and has supported Mauritania’s ongoing transition to democracy and the peaceful transfer of power. Mauritania is a member of the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership and receives security assistance to support its counterterrorism efforts. Today the U.S. embassy is in Nouakchott.
