Mauritania’s military coup leader has decided not to end diplomatic relations with Israel. "We are going to maintain [relations] because it is in the interest of both nations and for peace,” Col. Ely Ould Mohamed Vall told reporters at the presidential palace in his first press conference since the bloodless coup in August, The Associated Press reported. In 1999 Mauritania became one of three Arab countries to have diplomatic ties with Israel.
