The European Union on Monday set a one-month deadline for Mauritania's ruling junta to restore constitutional order or face "appropriate measures", a statement said following talks in Paris.
   
The meeting between EU officials and members of Mauritania's ruling junta failed to come to agreement on a return to civilian rule but more talks are planned in the coming weeks.
   
"In the absence of new elements within a period of one month, the consultations will end and appropriate measures will be proposed to the decision-making bodies of the European Union," the statement said.
