Nearly three weeks will pass between this visit and the one made by Josep Borrell, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, who welcomed from Rabat the “important role” that Morocco plays in regional peace and stability.
It also comes a short time after the European Parliament adopted a text “urging” the Moroccan government to “respect the freedom of expression and freedom of the media” and “ensure a fair trial for journalists imprisoned…”
