Spain: The new stop in Hammouchi’s visits to enhance security and intelligence cooperation
In order to advance bilateral and multilateral cooperation between Moroccan security interests and their foreign counterparts, Abdellatif Hammouchi, Director General of National Security and Territorial Surveillance, has relocated directly from the United States of America to Spain’s northern neighbor.
According to Morocco Telegraph sources, Abdellatif Hammouchi held working sessions and had lengthy discussions with his counterparts in the Spanish security and intelligence services. These discussions covered a variety of security issues of interest to both parties as well as mechanisms to support and develop bilateral cooperation.
The visit by Interior Minister Abdelouafi Laftit to the northern neighbor last Wednesday, or June 15, when he met with his Spanish counterpart Fernando Grande Marlasca, complements Hammouchi’s visit to the Kingdom of Spain. During their discussions, they covered a wide range of security-related topics as well as bilateral cooperation in a number of different areas. Including the struggle against terrorism and illegal immigration.
It is noteworthy that recent advancements in international security cooperation have given Morocco a prominent role at the regional and global levels, positioning the Kingdom of Morocco as a crucial collaborator in achieving global security and stability. Many European security officials traveled to Morocco in the last month, either to strengthen security cooperation, as was the case with the Director General of the German Federal Police, or to reach goodwill agreements, as was the case with the governor of the Lowland Police.
Abdellatif Hammouchi, the director general of national security and territorial surveillance, also traveled to many other nations as part of security cooperation agreements, including Qatar, which offered to use Morocco’s World Cup preparations as a model; the United States, where he met with top intelligence and security officials; and Spain. This is the southern entrance to the Schengen area of Europe.
