His Majesty King Letsie III accepted letters of credence from the first Ambassador of Georgia to Lesotho, Mr. Beka Dvali and the first Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania to Lesotho, Mr. Mohamed Ould Hannani at the event held at the Royal Palace in Maseru on Thursday.

Accepting letters of credence from Mr. Hannani, His Majesty expressed hope that his appointment as Mauritania's first ambassador to Lesotho will pave way to strengthen and deepen the relations that already exist between the two countries.

He said both countries share common values, aspirations and beliefs, adding that they both yearn for an Africa that is at peace with herself.

He said both countries are already aware of the correlation between poverty and underdevelopment and that both countries efforts to improve the socio-economic well-being of their peoples have been affected by climate change.

He therefore emphasised need for both countries to adopt common positions to address mitigation and adaptation strategies and related financing requirements, assuring him of the country support during his tenure of office.

Presenting his letters of credence, Mr. Hannani said Mauritania is aware of Lesotho's progress in promoting political stability, social and economic development.

He expressed gratitude to Lesotho over her support to Mauritania's struggle against poverty and development, pledging to strengthen the socio-economic and political cooperation between both countries.

Meanwhile, when accepting letters of credence from Mr. Dvali, His Majesty said the new relations between Lesotho and Georgia are a source of great joy and satisfaction for both countries and look forward to harnessing their common views and interests as small states in order to pursue a common purpose and agenda at international fora.

He said by so doing, they will be increasing their bargaining power at the global stage, where their interests as small states have not always been accorded due to recognition.

He added the relations between both countries are based on shared and cherished international principles of sovereign equality of states, mutual respect and non-interference in the internal affairs of others, as well as promoting a better life for their people.

Presenting his letters of credence, Mr. Dvali said both countries are committed to promoting a better future for their people.

He pledged to deepen political dialogue and open trade relations through business to business links between the two countries during his tenure of office.

The two Ambassadors paid a courtesy call on the Prime Minister, Dr Pakalitha Mosisili after the presentation ceremony.
