The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sanchez, has described his country’s relationship with Morocco as “strategic”, saying that bilateral cooperation encompasses all areas.
Sanchez, a guest on Sunday night’s “La Sexta” program on Spanish television, emphasized that “our relationship with Morocco is strategic in every sense of the word.”
“Morocco is important to us in terms of trade, economic access to a continent as important as Africa, security, the fight against terrorism, and, without a doubt, migration policy,” the Spanish Prime Minister said.
The cooperation and collaboration we have with the Kingdom of Morocco is really beneficial, I must tell you in this regard,” said Sanchez.
The Spanish Prime Minister stated that Spain has “a positive attitude” toward the Moroccan Sahara issue and views the Moroccan autonomy initiative as “the most serious, realistic, and credible basis for resolving the dispute,” noting that the United States, the international community, and the major European nations support the autonomy plan that Morocco presented in 2007.
“I have to acknowledge that there hasn’t been any advancement in the 50 years of this battle. Therefore, he said, “I believe that Spain must adopt this constructive attitude if the international community, the United States, and the major European countries say that we must find other ways to resolve this conflict within the framework of the United Nations, and the UN Security Council resolutions.
