“General Motor”

An earlier post about the Mauritanian President’s visit to Iran wondered what kind of buses Iran would send to Mauritania; Azizibuses was one of the lines emailed to me. Nowadays, according to young people, President Ould Abdel Aziz has earned the name “General Motor” for his efforts at fixing the problem of transport in his country.

On a related note: Ould Abdel Aziz got into a little bit of a row with Egypt on his way back; having ordered his Communication Minister to boycott an Arab Satellite Communication Organization conference in Cairo, leading the Egyptians to deny his plane fly over rights. Ould Abdel Aziz did not want to take part in the meeting in case the Iranian Arabic channel al-Alem, were kicked out.
