The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares, announced that he will pay a visit to Morocco on April 1st. The head of Spanish diplomacy, who made this announcement before the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Congress of Deputies, affirmed that he will have talks in particular with his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita.
The objective of this visit is to start preparing the “new roadmap” with Morocco which concerns the strengthening of bilateral relations in all areas, the revitalization of working groups and the consolidation of cooperation in all areas, he added.
Mr. Albares’ visit to Morocco follows Spain’s positive positions and constructive commitments on the Moroccan Sahara issue, contained in the message addressed to HM King Mohammed VI by the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sanchez.
The terms of this message make it possible to envisage a clear and ambitious roadmap in order to place the bilateral partnership on a lasting basis within the framework of the new bases and parameters underlined in the Royal Speech of August 20, indicated a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad.
