Military cooperation: Spain delivered 30 million euros worth of weapons to Morocco in 2022

According to the Iberian press, in 2022 Morocco would have purchased military supplies and equipment from Spain worth 30 million euros.

It appears that Morocco and Spain are actively collaborating on military matters. A recent revelation in the Spanish press supports this. After Rabat and Madrid’s reconciliation, Vozpopuli reports that Spain sold the Kingdom weapons worth 30 million euros. The same source claims that starting in the first half of 2022, Pedro Sanchez’s administration would have granted four licenses for the export of dual-use defense goods to Morocco.

As reported by Spanish media, 1,181 licenses for the sale of arms have been approved, generating 4,192 million euros in revenue for the Spanish industry.

In fact, European nations continue to be Spain’s main export markets, according to statistics from the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Tourism. Along with Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Mali, Morocco is listed as one of the key clients of the Iberian neighbor outside of NATO and the EU. These nations, including Morocco, have purchased weapons made in Spain for a total of about 481.1 million euros.

NATO allies imported 671.7 million euros, accounting for 52% of Spanish exports. According to Spanish media, the main customers are France, the United Kingdom, and Turkey.
