Journalists from Morocco and Spain will attend an international symposium on “Natural Neighborhood and Perspectives of Moroccan-Spanish Relations” that the Moroccan Federation of Newspaper Publishers (FMEJ) is hosting in Laayoune on February 24 and 25.
According to a statement from the Federation, this international symposium, which will include more than 80 participants, was organized in cooperation with the FMEJ section in the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra region. It is a “media dialogue” on Moroccan-Spanish relations between Moroccan journalists and their Spanish counterparts from the Canary Islands.
According to the same source, this gathering, which is being held in collaboration with institutional actors in the area, is a part of the inaugural “Media and Society Forum,” which was organized by the FMEJ section in Laayoune and marks both the 47th anniversary of the last foreign soldier’s departure from the Southern Provinces and the 65th anniversary of the Dcheira Battle.
The FMEJ called for strengthening bilateral ties in order to advance the interests of both countries and Morocco’s territorial integrity at a time when relations between Rabat and Madrid are also undergoing a new dynamic.
