The ambassador of the King to the European Union (EU) and NATO, Ahmed Rahhou, was received Wednesday in Brussels by the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk.
At this hearing, Mr Rahhou presented the President of the European Council with his credentials as Ambassador, Head of the Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco to the European Union.
On this occasion, Mr Rahhou conveyed the greetings of His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the President of the European Council and the Kingdom’s thanks for the mobilization of all the European institutions in order to meet the deadlines.
The ambassador also expressed to Tusk his determination to work, in accordance with the High Royal Guidelines, to further develop the high-level partnership between Morocco and the EU.
The audience was an opportunity to salute the excellent relations between the two parties who took a leap forward at the last meeting of the Association Council held last June in Brussels, which was marked by the launch of the “Euro-Moroccan Partnership of Shared Prosperity”, an unprecedented framework in Europe’s relations with neighboring countries.
Emphasis was placed on the need to move forward in this new statutory framework that strengthens the existing partnership arsenal, including the advanced status, multiple cooperation agreements and neighborhood instruments.
The Kingdom’s model of stability in the region, its African extension and its key role in the implementation of Moroccan-European cooperation, particularly in the areas of migration and security, were the subject of a fruitful exchange during the a broad overview of the issues of common interest discussed at this hearing.
