The Spanish government has highlighted the existence of a “great opportunity” to redefine relations with Morocco following the speech addressed by King Mohammed VI to the Nation, on the occasion of the 68th anniversary of the King’s Revolution and People.
In a written response to a question from the Vox parliamentary group, published on Tuesday, the government argued that “there is currently a great opportunity to redefine bilateral relations and the pillars on which they are based.”
In this sense, the Spanish executive, led by Pedro Sanchez, assured that it is working to build “new and firm relations with Morocco” to consolidate “bilateral cooperation”.
In its response, the Spanish coalition government reiterated that “Morocco is a strategic partner and a friendly country”.
King Mohammed VI had indicated, in his speech of August 20, that Morocco wishes, with sincere optimism, to continue to work with the Spanish government and its president, Pedro Sanchez, in order to inaugurate “an unprecedented step” in the relations between the two neighboring countries.
These relations will have to be based on trust, transparency, mutual consideration and respect for commitments, the Sovereign had made a point of clarifying.
