Mauritania uses Greenwich Mean Time GMT. GMT of course is UTC +0000 Mauritania's latitude and longitude is 20° 00' N and 12° 00' W. Therefore geographically being one hour behind UTC would be a little bit better for the west of the country. Of course the east of the country is better off being on GMT so there is no big need to change time zones. There is no daylight savings time in Mauritania. Considering its latitude this isn’t surprising.
