London Administrative Court rejects a petition to the UK-Morocco Association Agreement

The administrative court of London rejected, on Monday, the petition of a British NGO (WSC), working on behalf of the “polisario”, which challenged the association agreement between Morocco and Great Britain.

With this decision, the British court system upholds the legality of the partnership agreement between Morocco and the UK, which benefits the people and the economic growth of every area of the Kingdom, from the north to the south, without exception.

By failing to persuade the British justice to reexamine the post-Brexit trade agreement, which was signed and approved by the two Kingdoms, this verdict deals a further blow to those who want to undermine the Kingdom’s territorial integrity.

The British government confirmed its commitment to maintaining the collaboration with Morocco as soon as the judgement was made public.

“We appreciate today’s decision. To maximize the £2.7 billion in trade that currently exists between our two countries, we will continue to collaborate closely with Morocco “a representative of the UK Department for International Trade stated.

Next year, he promised, “We look forward to continuing our exchanges with our Moroccan counterparts through the Association Council.”

The Morocco-UK Association Agreement, which was signed on October 26 in London, becomes effective on January 1 of 2021.

The Agreement reinstates all of the effects that the two nations gave each other through the Morocco-EU Association Agreement within the scope of bilateral ties. As a result, it guarantees that commercial relations between Morocco and London UK would continue until December 31, 2020.

The Agreement serves as a guarantee for Moroccan and British businesses conducting economic and trade relations in all sectors of cooperation and covering the entire Kingdom by enabling the two Kingdoms to settle definitively into a structured strategic partnership, endowed with operational and institutionalized cooperation instruments, and driven by a shared ambition.
