Migration: Spain urges the EU to unlock funds promised to Morocco

Spain continues to plead the cause of Morocco in the management of migratory flows. Madrid has again asked the European Commission to release the remaining funds to allow the Kingdom to manage the inflow of migrants into the enclaves of Sebta and Melilla as well as arrivals to Spain by sea.

Consuelo Rumí, Secretary of State for Migration, went to Brussels where she held various meetings with two objectives: to present Spain as the interlocutor of Morocco to the European partners and to try to unblock the funds waiting in Rabat.

Morocco has already received 30 million euros on the amount of 140 million euros promised. Consuelo Rumí insists that the remaining 110 million euros be paid to Morocco. The payment would delay because of  an exacerbated bureaucracy, denounced Rumí.
