Washington D.C. - It will be a mistake to dismiss the European Court of Justice (ECJ) decision to annul the European Union -Morocco agricultural agreement as a political ploy. The ECJ pronouncement   is a legal ruling that Moroccan lawyers and diplomats must fight in court. The Moroccan Foreign Ministry should not hide behind political arguments to avoid mounting rigorous and legally sound counterarguments to revise and correct this injustice.
