“For Spain, the relationship with Morocco is a state policy and is based on the commitment to build a comprehensive strategic partnership,” said a statement from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and the Cooperation.
“Spain is Morocco’s leading trading partner and the two countries are linked by exemplary cooperation relations in several fields such as migration management and counterterrorism cooperation,” the statement added on the occasion of the visit, Monday in Morocco, by the head of the Spanish diplomacy, Josep Borrell.
The document also stresses that Spain wants the Kingdom and the European Union (EU) to be bound by “the closest possible relations for the mutual benefit” of both parties.
The same source noted that Spain is one of the main promoters of the strengthening of these relations in the political, institutional, political and security domains.
During this visit, Mr. Borrell held talks with Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. He also took part in a brainstorming meeting on the future of relations between Morocco and the EU.
