Reliable sources have confirmed that Germany has decided to invite Morocco to participate in the International Conference on Libya which will be held on June 24th in Berlin.
“The invitation has been sent and Morocco’s response has not yet been announced”, adds the same source, noting that the German invitation did not take into consideration the deterioration which characterized relations between the two countries for several weeks.
It should be recalled that Morocco recently summoned Ambassador Karima Benyaich for consultation after denouncing several “hostile acts” and “attacks” by Germany against “the Kingdom’s best interests”.
The Moroccan Foreign Ministry denounced the “antagonistic activism” of Berlin following the recognition by the US recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Sahara, as well as “the continued determination” of Germany “to combat the regional role of Morocco, particularly at the level of the Libyan file”.
It should also be noted that Germany had excluded Morocco from the Berlin conference on Libya in January 2020. In October 2020, Morocco was invited to a meeting on Libya, at the initiative of this country, by videoconferencing, an invitation that had been declined by Moroccan diplomacy.
