Spanish FM visits Morocco to boost strategic partnership, constructive dialogue

Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albares, is currently paying a visit to Morocco, his first trip abroad less than a month after the inauguration of the new Spanish government, led by Pedro Sánchez, to give a boost to the strategic partnership and further the ongoing constructive dialogue between the two countries.

The Spanish top diplomat’s talks with Moroccan officials, including Head of the Government Aziz Akhannouch and Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, review ways of reinforcing the serenity, deep friendship, and strategic relations between Morocco and Spain.

The talks with Akhannouch discussed ways and means of consolidating ties between Morocco and Spain in various sectors, including politics, economics, and culture, a statement released by the Office of the Head of Government said.

Discussions praised the special friendship and cooperation that binds the two countries. The two sides also underlined the bilateral strategic partnership, which enjoys the attention and endorsement of the leaders of both countries, King Mohammed VI and King Felipe VI, the statement said.

The two sides expressed satisfaction with the alignment of their perspectives on various matters of common interest. They further commended the quality of the two countries’ partnership, characterized by neighborliness, mutual trust, and ongoing constructive dialogue.

These relations continue to evolve thanks to the strong impetus given by King Mohammed VI during his meeting with the Spanish Government President Pedro Sánchez on April 7, 2022 that highlighted by the conclusion of a Joint Declaration.

Only eighteen months after the conclusion of this Joint Declaration, partnership between Morocco and Spain has experienced sustained momentum and tangible progress in several areas of common interest.

This is evident in enhanced and constant political dialogue, significant economic partnership, and a wide range of cooperation in various fields, including culture, education, scientific research, sustainable development, sports, and the fight against illegal immigration and terrorism.
