“The strategic partnership between Morocco and the European Union has been subject to harassment from time to time by the judiciary and the media aimed at undermining the depth of this partnership,” said Nasser Bourita, Minister for Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad.

“The partnership between the Kingdom and the European Union is of a strategic and mutually beneficial nature,” said a representative of the Moroccan government during a press conference held after the reception of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell.

The Moroccan minister underlined that “this partnership is subject to constant harassment by the media and successive prosecutions by the institutions of the European Union and the European Parliament because of the questions directed against Morocco, which are aimed at this partnership.”

Regarding prosecutions in Europe, Burita believes that “Morocco stated at the highest level in the Royal Throne Day speech that the Sahara is the glasses through which Morocco views the world and measures the commitment of its allies.”

And he stated that “the persecution of the media is detrimental to this strategic partnership because there are European parties who are concerned about the progress that Morocco is making in terms of development and economy,” stressing that “Morocco is protecting its interests and relying on its allies to protect this partnership. it reflects geographic proximity and exchange of values.”

The same Moroccan official emphasized that “the visit of the European official reflects the strategic partnership with Europe, especially after this year, which we said goodbye to and which was marked by the strengthening of the strategic partnership through green cooperation and green financing.”

The same official indicated that “Morocco will work to strengthen political dialogue with the European Union, including immigration, security and economic development,” stressing that “the European Union is a strategic partner and first choice for the Kingdom.”

He said that “the strategic partnership with the countries of the European Union is based on good neighborly partnership, values ​​and interests, which are the values ​​of openness, cooperation and respect”, noting that “partnership requires finding ways to strengthen it.”

The visit of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy to Morocco came after he turned the page on a dispute with him. Last September, Rabat canceled a bilateral meeting scheduled in the Moroccan capital with a senior European official in protest of statements he had made on a Spanish channel regarding the Moroccan Sahara affair.
