Through the great work of local partners the Maison de la Presse of Mauritania,  His Excellency President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, agreed to a signing ceremony for WAN-IFRA’s Declaration of Table Mountain on 5 September 2013.  Due to a number of changes in his government, the Maison de la Presse and WAN-IFRA are still working towards a date for the signing ceremony.

“We’re delighted that His Excellency wishes to make press freedom an enduring legacy of his government”, said Ms Alison Meston, WAN-IFRA’s Director of Global Campaigns.  “We’re keen to move forward on discussions to find a suitable date for the signing ceremony and we’re excited to work with Mauritania to ensure a strong, independent and sustainable press that is committed to practicing ethical journalism.
