Tuesday, March 23th, the Dutch government released an official statement condemning the recent events in the Moroccan consulates in Den Bosch and Utrecht, where, in a cowardly act, the persons in question stormed the two representations and desecrated the Moroccan flag and all symbols standing for the Moroccan nation.

The Netherlands promised to take all security and legal measures against the perpetrators of these acts, while the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Stef Blok, considered these actions “unacceptable”.

In the same context, the minister admitted that “during recent years, demonstrations were held on several occasions near Moroccan consulates and near the Moroccan embassy.” For their part, the Moroccan authorities protested, considering the storming operation a violation of the Vienna Convention on the sanctity of diplomatic headquarters and the duty of the host country to protect them.

On Monday, individuals stormed the Consulate General of the Kingdom of Morocco in Den Bosch, and desecrated the national flag and the symbols of the nation; a similar incident also occurred last January at the Moroccan Consulate in Utrecht.
